There are numerous anecdotal tales on the medicinal benefits of honey. Recent scientific studies provide convincing proof that honey is indeed a medicine as well as a wonderful tasting food. This book documents information that takes honey out of the realm of "folk medicine" and places it firmly in the realm of "modern medicine."
The antibacterial properties of honey are covered in detail. For many, incorporating honey into their daily diet can result in considerable savings by reducing the amount of money spent on prescription drugs.
Honey for athletes is also discussed with citations of studies showing improved athletic performance when honey is consumed.
Several chapters acquaint the reader with the many and varied flavors of quality honey. Besides being a major ingredient of a healthy lifestyle, honey is an inexpensive gourmet treat that can be enjoyed by all.

- Daniel Blodgett, M.D.
"...very informative and well written. I highly recommend this reading for everyone, especially medical professionals."
