New 'super-honey' offers healing power

A new bio-engineered 'super honey' is proving highly effective at treating infections and wounds.

Known as 'Surgihoney' the new substance appears to provide unique health benefits and could revolutionize the treatment of infected wounds. Trials indicated that it was highly effective against MRSA and other antibiotic-resistant bacteria and has been used to help heal the wounds of soldiers in Afghanistan. It also seems to be helpful in the treatment of ulcers and even acne.

"I have conducted numerous laboratory tests and compared it with honeys from around the world," said microbiologist Dr Matthew Dryden. "I found Surgihoney better for treating every type of bug. So for the past year I have been using it on patients and the results have been amazing."

"A new honey has been produced that has had ‘amazing’ results treating wounds and infections."

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... [More]

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

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??

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... [More]
