Honey kills babies...... If this were true, it would be common knowledge. Perhaps processed honey kills babies?

According to the FAQ in a honey site:

http://www.honey.com/nhb/about-honey...ey-properties/

Quote:
Why can’t I feed honey to my baby less than 1 year of age?
Honey may contain Clostridium botulinum spores that can cause infant botulism - a rare but serious disease that affects the nervous system of young babies (under one year of age). C. botulinum spores are present throughout the environment and may be found in dust, soil and improperly canned foods. Adults and children over one year of age are routinely exposed to, but not normally affected by, C. botulinum spores. Honey is safe to consume during pregnancy and lactation. While infants are susceptible to the infant botulism, adults, including pregnant females, are not. The concern for babies stems from the fact that infants lack the fully developed gastrointestinal tract of older humans. Since the mother is not in danger of developing this condition, the unborn baby is protected. Spores are inactivated when manufactured food products (such as cereals or nuts) receive a roasting heat treatment. Graham crackers or cereal, for example, would not contain any viable microbial spores.
Of course they are from the National Honey Board.

Then you got this from a pdf from CDC:

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dbmd/disea...s/botulism.PDF

Quote:
Since 1980, infant botulism has been the most common form of botulism reported in the
United States. It is epidemiologically distinct from foodborne botulism, representing not ingestion
of toxin preformed in contaminated foods but colonization (infection) of the intestine by spores of
C. botulinum, with subsequent in vivo toxin production.(21) Although infant botulism was first
described in 1976,(22,23) earlier cases have been identified retrospectively, and its detection only in
recent years might reflect advances in diagnostic capabilities rather than the emergence of a new
clinical syndrome.
The disease is characterized by the onset of constipation, which is followed shortly by
neuromuscular paralysis that begins with the cranial nerves and progresses to peripheral and
respiratory musculature. The spectrum in severity has ranged from mild lethargy and slowed
feeding to severe hypotonia and respiratory insufficiency.
Either honey had it and no one noticed until the 70's or it started getting it at some point.

Well children under 1 should be only getting their mothers milk. I'm sure the mom could eat the honey and filter it for the baby. I wouldn't feed an infant honey until they can start to chew solid foods.

Bee pollen is good for you too. I like to add it to my smoothies and oatmeal.

"Bee pollen is often referred to as nature's most complete food. Human consumption of bee pollen is praised in the Bible, other religious books, and ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. It has long been prescribed by traditional health practitioners-including the fathers of Western medicine Hippocrates, Pliny the Elder, and Pythagoras-for its healing properties. Bee pollen rejuvenates your body, stimulates organs and glands, enhances vitality, and brings about a longer life span. Bee pollen's ability to consistently and noticeably increase energy levels makes it a favorite substance among many world class athletes and those interested in sustaining and enhancing quality performance."

I thought bee pollen was weird too but I did my research on it and was convinced it's healthy. So I bought a bag a health food store. Doesn't really taste like anything but it does make your throat itchy. Kinda pricey too.

Careful. My friend ate some bee pollen and began coughing and sneezing after wards. I think he was allergic to it.

The first one will help me immensely. I'm in front of the computer a lot. But I can't drink Carrot Juice; not that I don't like it, but it makes me feel like throwing up.

I use honey for my face after an invigorating scrub. It really helps in giving your skin softness and glow.
