Mysterious Honey Destroys All Bacteria It Touches


Australian researchers rediscovered an immaculate cure for bacterial disease that seems to only exist in the New Zealand/Australia corner of the world; Manuka Honey.
Manuka Honey was available in health shops around the area for a while before now, but recently it leaked into the mainstream just how effective this honey is at treating pathogens. The honey was used by indigenous people as medicine for who knows how long before this rediscovery.
Honey from bees native to other areas is medicinal too of course, but Australian researchers recently found that this particular honey functions better to treat bacterial infections better than all known antibiotics. It literally kills any bacteria  or pathogens it touches. It can be applied externally to basically any infection.
Not only that, but the bacteria were reported to get zero immunity to the honey over time. That means these ‘superbugs’ engineered by the repeated use of antibiotics could be killed by this special Manuka Honey.
The bees that produce this honey feed on tea trees local to Australia and New Zealand. This honey can only come from bees who fed on pollen from these trees, says Professor Dee Carter, of The University of Sydney’s School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences.
She also said “Honey sounds very homey and unscientific, which is why we needed the science to validate the claims made for it,”
and “Most bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are resistant to at least one antibiotic, and there is an urgent need for new ways to treat and control surface infections, ” “New antibiotics tend to have short shelf lives, as the bacteria they attack quickly become resistant. Many large pharmaceutical companies have abandoned antibiotic production because of the difficulty of recovering costs. Developing effective alternatives could therefore save many lives. ”
She also said “a compound in the honey called methylglyoxal combined in unknown ways with other unidentified compounds in the honey to cause multi-system failure in the bacteria.”
The full report was published in this month’s edition of the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.
Please share this with as many people as possible, because as this professor said people need to hear the science behind natural cures to validate the claims made for them. This is perfect evidence of the effectiveness of this natural cure.

10 Interesting Things About Honey You Might Not Know 
Aside from being delicious, honey offers a great deal of benefits. Honey can be used to treat wounds, soothe sore throats and coughs, and antibiotic resistant bacteria. It’s also an anti-inflammatory and great source of energy.

Like most things, honey consumption should be respectively moderated. But there won’t be much point in that if you end up buying fake honey.

In addition to the medicinal value, here are a few things that make honey so interesting.

1. Honey was used by the Ancient Egyptians to embalm the dead. They also often offered honey to Min the fertility god.

2. Humans use of honey dates back for millennia. Cave paintings dated back 13,000 years show beekeeping. You can find the worlds oldest beehive in Israel, sitting intact at 3,000 years old.

3. The oldest honey, found in Georgia, was estimated to be 5,000 years old. And it was still good to eat.

4. Honey is the only food that doesn’t every spoil. Organisms can’t survive in honey due to low moisture and high acidity.

5. It is believed that Alexander the Great was entombed in a coffin of honey.

6. Honey is used to make mead, a sweet alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey, water, and yeast.

7. In 2012, China, Turkey, and Ukraine were the world’s top suppliers of honey.

8. The honeybee is the only insect that produces human food.

9. Beekeeping is illegal in several U.S. cities. It became legal in NYC in 2010.

10. A honeyguide is a species of small bird that lead honey badgers to beehives to they can feed on the leftover beeswax when the honey badger is done feasting.
