Scottish honey is as good as New Zealand Manuka honey.

This is according to a study published in The Veterinary Journal and carried out by Dr Patrick Pollock and colleagues at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Glasgow.

Of 11 different honeys tested, heather honey from the Inverness area was particularly effective, killing MRSA microbes and three other types of bacteria.

In the UK, Scottish Heather honey costs an average of £1.90 for 100g while 100g of manuka is £4.71.

That's not to say that regular honey isn't good too. It's just not quite as good as Manuka. Manuka is merely honey made from bees that use tea tree pollen. Tea tree is a useful anti-fungal amongst other things. I'm guessing heather has similar properties. For me, the price point is the biggest difference. I can't afford manuka. And without being entirely certain I'm pretty sure we don't get Scottish honey here in Oz. So, boo hoo, it's the regular honey for me.

And yes, wounds - honey is the first thing I reach for.

best etc. etc.

good article on syria by Michael Parenti with this little new item:

.. According to centuries-old Islamic prophecy they espouse, [jihadis] must establish an Islamic state in Syria as a step to achieving a global one."

another reason why syria is being targeted? anybody know about this 'prophecy'?

Local raw organic honey is the best to use, wherever you are from. So many this one of the reasons bees are dying? Or is it just because we will need to rely on the ptb to feed us?

Sugar is also effective for healing sores and wounds.
