I and many others I have spoken with have experienced the incredible health benefits of pure, raw, local honey. It means a lot to us beekeepers to be able to provide our customers with a great product that we can truly believe in. But with so many variables involved, it is difficult to guarantee our customers any specific results from the use of honey. The last thing we would want to do is mislead someone with a health claim that could have the opposite effect as we want. As I give presentations to beekeepers on what we do know about honey, and what we can say to our customers about it, I’ve decided to make available a summary of some of the sources of the information I share. Some of it is very promising. There is much more desperately needed research to be done, and much of the research that has been done leaves a lot to be desired. With these limitations, sometimes the best thing we can tell our customers is to “try it out” and believe in the long term benefits of long-term choices for what is natural and God-given.
