Bee healthy with honey

July 1, 2012

"Hast thou found honey? Eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste." Such is the sage advice as found in Proverbs, one of many diverse places where in ancient times honey was revered and a sought after prize. In the last two weeks in the columns "The buzz on bees" and "Sweet as honey" we have seen how bees swarm as a means of reproducing colonies and what kind of honey is typically produced in Chautauqua County as these industrious creatures pollinate so many of the crops for which we are dependent on as our food source. Beyond all these foods however, are many "secrets" in the honey itself that many cultures around the world have known for centuries. As promised, some of the simple yet wonderful benefits of this "nectar of the gods" follow for those so inclined to get back to the "yesterdays" of what nature has to offer for a "todays" remedy for what is ailing.
