Honey Beats Traditional Treatment for Respiratory Infections...

STORY AT-A-GLANCE
* A review of 14 studies showed honey to be superior to the usual treatment of cold symptoms in adults
* It was as effective as cough medicine in children when compared to two common over-the-counter medications -- " dextromethorphan and diphenhydramine
* Most upper respiratory tract infections are caused by viruses that do not respond to antibiotics. Using honey may slow the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria
* Honey you buy from the grocery store may be adulterated or fake. Seek local producers at farmers markets and test the physical properties, including scent, thickness, taste and stickiness
