Is honey good for you?

I was wondering if honey is good for one's health.

I mean I tried to have slice of wheat toast with honey spread over it. It tasted delicious and so I thought if this was okay. Does honey have any side effects? Is it more harmful than sugar, etc. I am not a calorie counter, but just wanted a healthy alternative to sugar if one existed.

In so far you are not inserting a butter knife into a beehive to get honey to your bread, it has no side effects

Good one

Okay, does it have any benefits over other forms of sweetners?

Re: Is honey good for you?

Honey has many medicinal benefits...on the other hand sugar calories count as empty calories....
They say massaging honey on Gums every once in a while, keeps them healthy...
A little honey and lemon in water in the begining of the day is very refreshing and its said to help in wt reductn too...

Only downside, i have heard of is that its not good for very young infants...as it contains some harmful bacterial spores to which adults are immune , but kids are not...

Overall ...i'd say- a good alternative to sugar...provided one can burn the excess calories...

Are baba Dollyji,

Sochho ... jarra sochho ... did you consider the person who is asking this kweshionwa? He is in to early or late 40's ... lives a sedenterree life style ... works on computers and sits on his arse all day. Walks a mile ... smailes satisfied and says to himself ... bahut achhee kasrat ho gayee.

Now ... if Saxena Saheb in his late teens had asked about benefits of Honey ... my reply would have been diphrent.

See ... no see? As far as Sutradarji is concerned ... all these benefits do him no good ... harm more.

Anyay ... set paanch kors menu. First kem roll of bread with makhan followed by soup and bloody stupid dry bread crumbs (to put in soup).

It waaj what followed ... wetor places in front of us three large bowls of leaves with colorful flowers! I did not bloody no what to do so just waited. Big Boss and his less little Boss started eating flowers. I just could not understand ... what the hell are flowers doing in salad plate. My Big Boss upon realising my hejeetesion assured me ... these are edible flowers and test gret.

I dont no why but I remembered ... I don no why.
i used to wonder if all these guys eat is salad and more salad...how come their weight 10 times as much as an average fat desi! ....and then i saw the big chunks of cheese

Yaar, I don't know too much about the calories, sugar, etc. and if its good to eat everyday. But, I have taken 2-3 spoonfuls of honey when I had cold & cough the last time and it helped me feel better soon.

Honey also reminds me of those huge beehives at the top of Pune University Tower.

* Add: * I wonder if they are still there on the Pune Univ. Tower.
