Medical Researchers Study Manuka Honey for Cancer Treatment

A research team in the United Arab Emirates has spent over 5 years studying the effects of Manuka Honey on cancer cells and tumors. They have published findings that show significant promise for the role of Manuka honey in treating cancer. They found Manuka honey inhibits the growth of cancer cells, induces cell death (apoptosis) in cancer cells, and inhibits the growth of cancerous tumors. Manuka honey was also found to reduce the toxicity of traditional cancer medicines, pointing to the potential to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. Additional research by this team is on-going with a focus on better understanding the mechanisms by which Manuka honey exerts its various effects on cancer cells. We have a link to this research here.
