Honey: Banned in 27 European Countries - Yet Still Considered Healthy?

Story at-a-glance -

  • Malnutrition may be an underlying factor, causing the destruction of  bees' immune systems, making them more vulnerable to toxic and viral exposures.
  • Microwaves from cellular phones have also been shown to cause CCD within 10 days, apparently by affecting the bees' communication with the hive and disrupting their navigational ability.
  • Millions of pounds of honey that has been banned by the European Union is being smuggled into the US from China. Much of this honey is tainted with illegal antibiotics, including chloramphenicol, which can cause DNA damage and cancer, and heavy metals like lead.
  • Fake honey is also common. Some Chinese brokers sell a mix of sugar water, malt sweeteners, corn or rice syrup, jaggery, barley malt sweetener or other additives as the real thing. Others simply use thickened, colored, natural or chemical sweeteners labeled as honey.
  • Toxic pesticides such as Imidacloprid and Clothianidin have been implicated in colony collapse disorder (CCD). Genetically engineered crops may also be a source of toxic exposure.
