Weird question,
can honey mess with the good bacteria in our digestive tracts or has it changed its chemical compound by then to not cause any issues?

Автор ScientistDog ( назад)
The risk with honey is if you let it open (specially if it's cold), so air mosture condenses over its surface, and that water disolves some sugar without being saturated nor having the same low pH, so any dormant bacteria in the honey (specially Clostridium Botulinum) can grow there.

those honey in the plastic bear bottle is not real honey, cuz it has been filtered( take out the pollens ) then heated to kill potential life threatening bacteria, but during the process it also kills a lot of good stuff. So if u want the real honey that really kills bacteria and boost your immune system then u better go shop at the Whole Foods and look for label says " RAW, Not filtered, Not heated"

Most market honey is not even close to the real farmer's honey, lots of chemicals and added sugar, basically worthless. It should be noted. Just like most of cinnamon production, dont expect the hundreds of healing properties to work from market products. Real cinnamon and honey taste 10 times better.

I guess it figures that something so deadly to bacteria, can safely contain one of the most deadly types of bacteria. The irony was required by nature or something.

So if you were to dilute the 10% of honey with the spores in it would it have enough water to continue to produce the toxin and be dangerous?

Does honey suck the life out of bacteria indiscriminately? Does it kill good bacteria, too? How does that affect its health benefits?

Imagine what WHITE GENOCIDE would be like.
You would have to flood EVERY and ONLY White countries with millions of non-Whites.
Then you would have to demoralize ALL Whites by screaming the R-Word! at them if they objected.
Then you would have to pass laws to FORCE integrate all those non-Whites into every facet of White society.
Then you would have to…Oh wait. This is already happening!
They say it’s “anti-racist” but it’s simply anti-White.
Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

So could you cover a strawberry for example in honey, let it crystallize and eat it a year later???

I had gone to the doctors 3 times for an esophagus problem over a years time and they did not cure me. So, I started eating honey every day. The first day I ate honey, within seconds, my throat felt better and I haven't had any problem since then. I only eat it off and on now.

I wonder if people are gonna use honey as lube now.

Автор R. Lara-Moore ( назад)
my understanding is that the honey must be raw and unfiltered to retain all these good for you properties. usually the honey in a plastic bear is the overly processed kind. heat and filtering diminishes the honey's good for you properties. read labels buy wisely ^.~

The dangerousity of honey for children under the age of one comes not from botulism but from the overuse of pesticides (Neonicotionides sold by Monsanto, Bayer) that are extremely agressive nerve poisons and can accumulate in honey as it is over-used in agriculture.
Of course this can't be told in public so they have found out the "botulism cover up story" that is completely wromg as honey contains bee propolis that is the most efficient desinfection material ever created in Earth and no bacteria/parasite or virus can stand it.
It is a fake sience spread by stupid marketing people from Monsanto/Bayer.

Wait, so does this glucose oxidase business mean there is a considerable amount of hydrogen peroxide in natural honey? Isn't it harmful enough to avoid honey?

And does the enzyme have a chance to activate in our gut, where the honey is somehat diluted? Or is it irreversibily inactivated in gastric acid?

This is mentioned in the Koran (islam book) 1400 years ago.
GOD SAID : And your Lord inspired the bee, saying, ‘Build yourselves houses in the mountains and trees and what people construct.
Then feed on all kinds of fruit and follow the ways made easy for you by your Lord.’ From their bellies comes a drink of different colours in which there is healing for people. There truly is a sign in this for those who think.
