      Having read the study the manufacturers cite, there are some glaring
      shortcomings. The one that stands out is the fact that more than half (60%)
      apparently received little or no benefit. Other items that drew my attention
      were the small sample size (30 patients) and the lack of a control or
      placebo. Published or otherwise, without more study the claims are mostly
      inconclusive.

      That special honey is marketed as LifeMel I bet?

      At $320 a LB plus postage (I think it was) and some very dubious and
      vague claims regarding feeding herb extracts to their honeybees
      makes me think this is a ruse to take large amounts of moneu off
      very sick people (by UK standards adulterated honey is not honey any
      more) shameful IMO.

      They have failed to reply to questions from another beekeeped based
      on another yahoo board, at least that was my most recent
      understanding regarding some emails sent to their UK distributer;
      LifeMel originates in Israel.
