Honey has been known for its therapeutic properties since the time of ancient civilizations. Modern scientists have been catching up with this time-honored knowledge in recent decades. In a recent review of scientific research studies on Manuka honey, researchers looked at the properties of Manuka honey, its chemical composition with special reference to flavonoids, polyphenol, and other bioactive trace compounds used in carcinogenesis (the development of cancer), tissue regeneration, and other health-benefiting functions.
The included studies they reviewed showed that Manuka honey can inhibit the process of carcinogenesis by controlling different molecular processes, and progression of cancer cells. Also, Manuka honey has been found to have various biological activities, including antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-proliferative capacities. Scientists have also tried to use Manuka honey in the area of tissue engineering to design a template for regeneration.
The big take away here is that in addition to bacterial growth inhibition, Manuka honey can enhance wound healing and tissue regeneration by its immunomodulatory properties, as well as have positive affect on cancer development and progression.

Have you heard that honeybees never sleep? It seems to be a notion that is perpetuated by word of mouth. Researchers say otherwise. It just goes to prove that you can’t believe everything you hear.
According to Jürgen Tautz in his book The Buzz About Bees, foragers enter a pronounced state of sleep—largely at night and in the hive. However, sometimes they sleep outside the hive as well. In addition, beekeepers and bee photographers the world over have reported seeing bees asleep in flowers. The bees may remain stationary for hours, only to fly away when disturbed.
