Re: Viruses- the human kind!

I love honey too, but there are warnings about using it for babies under one year. Has been linked to infant botulism. Clostridium botulinum spores are found in honey and activate in infant (under 1 yr) intestines. The spores develop into the bacteria which produces the toxin that causes paralysis and death. Curiously, those over 1 yr are not affected.

My hot toddy is similar, one freshly squeezed lemon, strained, a couple tablespoons of honey, a shot glass of whisky (more or less, I usually do MORE...medicinal purposes only ya know) and hot water. Works like charm. Honey is a true gift of nature...absolutely NO bacteria can grow in it....and it helps with allergies if you use the kind harvested from your neck of the woods. I use honey as a sugar substitute in most everything.
