FOOD FOR THOUGHT
|An apple in the breadbin will keep food fresh.||Strawberries contain high levels of ellagic acid, which helps the body fight the effects of pollution.|
|Native Americans ate cranberries to ward off food poisoning.||If you get stung by a wasp, rub raw onion on the spot. Vinegar or an onion also works for a bee sting.|
|Get rid of bad breath by chewing parsley soaked in apple cider vinegar||Soak picked tomatoes in salty water for a few minutes if they've gone soft.|
Killing honeybees is both needless and irresponsible. In the U.K. Apis mellifera is becoming very scarce in the wild. Beekeepers spend countless hours and lots of money keeping them alive every year to pollinate our food crops.
Did you know? - Collectively, bees fly 24,000 miles and visit three to nine million flowers to make one pound of honey. Some of the flowers include dandelion, raspberry, blackberry, coneflower,bluebells, wallflower, poppy, white clovers, goldenrod, and heather. If one has allergies to these flowers, it is believed there is a beneficial anti-allergy effect by taking raw honey which contains trace amounts of their pollen. It is preferable to purchase honey from a local beekeeper near to your home, to ensure it contains the pollen you may be allergic to.
We have much to learn from the honeybee, bees can live without us
but we cannot live without them. Plans are already under way for us
to move to another planet, and when we do so, the honeybee
will be coming with us.
