Honey - A Miracle of Nature Excellent for Humans - Wonderful Book
on 6 August 2014
Honey is the only food manufactured by insects that humans consume. In fact it is so wonderful and has so many uses that I can only think of one other thing with so many uses and that is neem, a herb from India. The only difference is that Honey is sweet and therefore can be easily consumed while neem is known for its bitterness.
Honey has been used for ages by the humans and as this book rightly explains it has so many uses like skin care, wound healing and disease fighting capabilities that is almost incredible to believe. This book tells you about all these wonderful uses that honey has been put to by the humans and the best part is that it also tries to explain that why honey is able to do so. So you just don't get a superficial knowledge or just a plain list of the uses and health benefits of honey, but you get a chance to go under the hood an discover as to what component of honey is imparting it the particular magical property that it is displaying. I used the word magical because most of them are just magical. Just like the ability of honey to heal wounds and reduce weight. Both of these are opposite of what you would expect. You would expect something with a lot of sugar to cause infection to wounds and add weight to your body but honey manages to do just the opposite of that.
I had so many questions about honey before starting this book but this book has done a pretty good job answering most of them. If you are a honey enthusiast like me, this book is not to be missed.
