if you use local honey ,it can protect you from geographically gotten allergies
like since I have been living some of my time in arizona, supposedly where people go for lung issue,I got allergies for the first time in my life,itchy eyes,sneezing burst of up to 7 consecutive sneezes,local cactus honey seems to help prevent this,I stopped using sugar and sugar like foods,and my allergies are terrible,I am going to start using the honey again, thanks for the reminder!

Yes someone told me this today If you eat honey from your local area where the bees have got it from the local plants then you build up an immunity to these plants and pollen in the area so i will buy mine made in Kent now
thanks noted

Honey has been used for hundreds of years and is especially good for burns because of its healing properties and its antibiotic properties

I am not sure what the point is. Take honey instead of antibiotics? Take honey with antibiotics?

There are some diseases that honey won't touch. Usually, gram -, anaerobic. These are far and away the most deadly.
