My mother was eating a lot of honey, she was buzzing like a bee. I warned here about what I was seeing in her and tried to warn her to lay back on the honey. She took a big tablespoon of it right in front of me, saying honey won't hurt anyone. Two days later she had a massive stroke which left her mostly paralyzed on the left side for thirteen years.
So your anecdote about your mom getting paralyzed from honey happens to also be a rhyme? Bizarre? And 13 years? That's a funny number. Oh and it couldn't be the honey because after two days it should have passed through the system.
I believe it was stated in the OP clearly that diabetics need to be careful about limits in those links provided, as they are used to doing already.
And about overdoing it, the human body should alert the person when they overdo it. Personally I can't take more than a drop or two at a time usually, unless it's with other foods. I wouldn't think anyone should take a lot of anything, at least more than is recommended by nutrition experts who have compiled information for that purpose.
I think I read somewhere that if you break the 10 tablespoon a day limit (or around there) your body will start flushing it (diarrhea). I think people that overdid it reported a lot of flatulence as well.
I don't think I could stomach that much in the first place, I would probably gag from the sweetness.
Anyways, sorry about your mom. I'm glad she's better now though, maybe she should come make an account at ATS and tell us her story?edit on 26-5-2013 by muzzleflash because: (no reason given)edit on 26-5-2013 by muzzleflash because: (no reason given)edit on 26-5-2013 by muzzleflash because: (no reason given)edit on 26-5-2013 by muzzleflash because: (no reason given)
Ok. All you have to do is put honey on your lung cancer. Or dextrose. That's what the study actually says.

Medical studies showing promise treating cancer with honey:
These findings show a promising role for honey and D-glucose as biotherapeutic metabolites of interest for selective management of cancerous cells.
Another in vitro study. The problem again, how do you get honey to the breast cancer cells in order for it to be helpfully used in conjunction with tamoxifen
Tualang honey promotes apoptotic cell death induced by tamoxifen in breast cancer cell lines.
In vitro again but that one is not about honey.
The synergistic cytotoxic effect of cisplatin and honey bee venom on human ovarian cancer cell line A2780cp.
In vitro. Just how are you supposed to get honey to the cancer cells growing in someone's body?
Gelam and Nenas honeys are capable of suppressing the growth of HT 29 colon cancer cells by inducing apoptosis and suppressing inflammation.
Yup. Lots of studies about in vitro studies about lots of things...including aloe vera.
There are many more you can search for.edit on 26-5-2013 by Julie Washington because: (no reason given)
Because cancer cells metabolize glucose at a faster rate than non cancerous cells, feeding them honey or dextrose (both of which inhibit glycolysis, causes problems for them...in vitro...apparently in high concentrations. Here's another study about the use of fructose using the same theory:
Experimental evidence support that cancer cells do exhibit higher glycolytic rates than normal cells. To exploit this unique cancer-dependent ATP generation phenomenon, we hypothesize that exposure of cancer cells to organic inhibitors of glycolysis would negatively impact their survival
Role of fructose diphosphate (fdp) and glycerol on the differential survival of mrc-5 and a549 cell lines.

Hi, honey fans.
I did not read all answers here.
BUT, from personal experience :
DO NOT USE honey that HAS BEEN MODIFIED by humans !!
I mean : heated, pasterized, diluted, . . .etc. . .
It MUST be almost direct from the hive !!
My wife had "problems" with eating honey.
Then, we thinked about honey, similarly the way we think about milk !!
She tried REALLY PURE honey, AND GUESS WHAT ??? NO more problem !!!!

Dont know if anybody mentioned it yet, but its also super great for your skin, acne and blackheads and whatnot. and it cauterizes wounds fairly effectively. (old army trick)
Yup. Lots of cancer research. Some showing some good promise. But they are all in vitro studies. How to get the honey (or dextrose, or fructose) to the cancer in high concentrations...that's the problem.

OK I am ready with my honey drink.
Mix 200 ml yogurt with 200 ml milk and 1 tablespoon honey. You can add few drops of rose essence or dried crushed rose petals for flavor. Mix all these very well with a blender and refrigerate to cool the mixture (or add ice cubes if you do not have time to refrigerate).
You have a nice refreshing energy drink ready in minutes.
