New Beehive Lets You Harvest Honey Automatically Without Disturbing Bees

"With this brilliant invention by Stuart and Cedar Anderson, a father-and-son beekeeper team in Australia, honey bees around the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief.

 

The clever invention works by providing the bees with a partially-completed wall of honeycomb cells that they then complete with their own wax. After they fill these cells with honey and cap them with wax, the beekeeper can open the other end, allowing the honey to flow out into a tap without ever disturbing the bees. The bees simply reopen the cells and fill them up again."

Honey May be Superior to Over-the-Counter Medications For Cough in Children

In the latest issue of the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, researchers at the Pennsylvania State University's College of Medicine have reported...

 

...that buckwheat honey, which provides symptomatic relief for nighttime cough and sleep difficulty associated with upper respiratory tract infection in children, could substitute the use of dextromethorphan, the main ingredient in over-the-counter cough suppressants.


The research team, led by Dr.Ian Paul, an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Children’s Hospital, conducted the double-blinded randomized study on 105 children suffering from upper respiratory infections and nocturnal symptoms, and demonstrated that a single dose of honey, administered 30 minutes before bedtime, is more effective than honey-flavored dextromethorphan (DM) or no treatment, in relieving the symptoms of upper respiratory infection. The researchers also noticed that children administered DM showed almost similar effects as children without any treatment.
