Study: Honey heals faster than antibiotics: "A new study into an ancient remedy now proves that honey helps the treatment of some wounds better than most modern antibiotics. The study, by researchers from the University of Bonn, Germany, has found that medihoney is a very effective healer, even healing chronic wounds infected with multi-resistant bacteria within a few weeks. The study was conducted in collaboration with colleagues from Dusseldorf, Homburg and Berlin. Dr Arne Simon from the cancer ward of the Bonn University Children's Clinic said that with doctors being faced with germs resistant to all current antibiotics, honey was once again being seen as a viable treatment."
