Study: Honey May Be Better At Treating Coughs, Colds Than Over-The-Counter Medicines
(CNN) — Honey may be a better treatment for coughs and colds than over-the-counter medicines, a new study has found.

They encouraged doctors to consider recommending it to patients in place of prescribing antibiotics, which can cause side effects and lead to antibiotic resistance when overused. Honey has long been used as a home remedy for coughs, but its effectiveness in treating common illnesse...

Science sweetens native honey health claims
(University of Queensland) Examination of honey from five different stingless bee species across Neotropical and Indo-Australian regions has enabled for the first time the identification of the unusual disaccharide trehalulose as a major component representing between 13 and 44 g per 100 g of each of these honeys. The previously unrecognised abundance of trehalulose in stingless bee honeys is concrete evidence that supports some of the reported health attributes of this product. This is the first identification of trehalulose as a major component within a food commodity. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Instead, the genomic traits of the hive as a whole are strongly associated with how fiercely its soldiers attack. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

By Daud Khan and Leila Yasmine KhanAMSTERDAM/ROME, Jun 1 2020 (IPS) As the COVID-19 virus spread rapidly around the globe, so did various theories about what caused the pandemic. According to the standard scientific theory, the virus probably originated in bats and then crossed over to humans, probably via another intermediate host. It then spread rapidly across the globe, piggybacking on the international travel network. While the mainstream scientific theory sufficed for some, a large number of people saw the pandemic as the work of cold-hearted military or industrial strategists. An equally large number of people saw it...

Honeybees: Pesticides disrupt nursing behavior and larval development
(Goethe University Frankfurt) A newly developed video technique has allowed scientists at Goethe University Frankfurt at the Bee Research Institute of the Polytechnical Society to record the complete development of a honey bee in its hive. Researchers discovered that certain pesticides -- neonicotinoids -- changed the behaviour of the nurse bees: they fed the larvae less often. Larval development took up to 10 hours longer. A longer development period in the hive can foster infestation by parasites. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
