Honey and health

Medicine throughout the world has been using honey since ancient times. This is proven by a over 3000-years old Egyptian papyrus solved by George Ebers. The title of the papyrus was The book of medicine for all body parts and it describes various healing concoctions made out of honey. In pharaoh Egypt, in Greece and in ancient Rome, honey was used as a cure for internal diseases. They were also making plasters and compresses for external use out of it. The honey fumes were used for treating respiratory diseases. Democritus of Abdera once answered a question about what a man should do to live in good health and have a long life with: “Honey on the inside, oil on the outside.”
