FDA Quietly Acknowledges the Medical Benefits of Honey

The U.S. FDA has quietly approved a line of honey-based wound dressings. Although using honey to treat wounds is nothing new, it is a practice often relegated to "folk healing".

In fact, honey has antibacterial properties, and it produces its own hydrogen peroxide when combined with the fluid which drains from a wound. It also draws the pus and fluid from the wound, speeding the healing process.

Honey has been accepted by the overseas mainstream medical community for some time, and it looks like the U.S. has finally caught on.
