Like the article says, this has been known for ages. Now lets only hope there are enough bees left to produce anything, after Monsanto gets their way.

Don't worry, they'll bioengineer them too :lol:

Jokes aside, I was wondering, do they work on bees producing honey, or on the honey itself in "post-production"?

I have to wonder if this stuff is really pure honey or if there is a large amount of royal jelly within the  honey. ( Royal jelly is used by many peoples as a medication for many things it is made by the bees to feed to a larval queen  and it is the chemical that makes her fertile and gives her a long life   two to four years instead of the two to six months that most honey bees last.)

Surely it's not pure honey, there's some additive in it. Maybe they could have add some royal jelly too, but it can't be the only thing, otherwise I don't think they could patent it. Other than that, they're already used in combo since thousands of years, so still I don't think they could patent it.
But if it's the case, they're doing a great con!

I've been taking a teaspoon of raw, unfiltered honey every day since I was 21 years old.  So far, so good.

....thought this said super horny......cant decide if honey is better.

Stop being frightened. You only see a monster because they want you to see monsters everywhere. They've conditioned you to look for monsters in every shadow, every coat hung on every door. As long as we keep seeing monsters, we'll continue to need protection and that's how other people get to control our lives.

Lets see ... bets on it coming from a "altered" honeybee?
Bets on that Bee 'escaping' into the wild and thus meaning either a mutation in the bee population (ie South American Killer Bees) or a certain much beloved corporation claiming any bee with that altered Bee's DNA belongs to them and if you have a bee like that on your property thus meaning you owe them squllions? anyone??

maybe they just added stuff to regular natural honey too, leaving the bee totally out of it.

Like how they add bacteria to yoghurts, making probiotics, leaving the cow out if it too

I use raw honey for just about everything--minor cuts, burns, sore throats--you name it. It works. If they'd stop messing around with things that ain't broke, the world would be a lot better place. But someone's trying to build a better mousetrap, and that just means $$ lining their pockets.

The magical ingredient of honey is hydrogen peroxide. It has antiseptic qualities which help to keep the bee hive free of harmful bacteria and parasites thus ensuring a safe growing environment for the larvae which feed on the sweet part. Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidising agent, acting as a bleach at high concentrations (hence the peroxide blondes of yesteryear). Presumably, the modification to honey which is claimed to make it more medically effective is nothing more than increasing the peroxide concentration. Bees normally carry nectar to the hive and repeatedly regurgitate it until it has (a) fermented into glucose sugars and saccharides and (B) evaporated off most of its water content - that is the honey-making ritual, pure and simple. So modification of the ingredients would likely have more to do with the bees' behaviour or by augmenting the finished honey with additives.
