Honey for wound care

<< < (9/11) > >>

I download some stuff from the American Apitherapy Society when I was a member. 
Here's a link from my Dropbox to download the zip file:

I hope you find useful info in there.


I happened to notice last Sunday on some animal type tv show, that they used honey to treat a dolphin that had a severe sunburn.

His book.

Just curious, but why it can't be used for babies? 

Honey is the only known dietary reservoir of C. botulinum spores linked to infant botulism. For this reason honey should not be fed to infants less than one year of age.[13] Other cases of infant botulism are thought to be caused by acquiring the spores from the natural environment. Clostridium botulinum is a ubiquitous soil-dwelling bacterium. Many infant botulism patients have been demonstrated to live near a construction site or an area of soil disturbance.[citation needed]
