Honey has been found to help prevent cancer and even to help treat cancer. Honey contains many potent antioxidant compounds that help to protect the cells and prevent cancer. Honey has even been shown to inhibit the growth and spread of cancer cells. Studies have shown that honey can assist in the treatment of certain cancers, like prostate, bladder, endometrial, kidney, skin, cervical, oral and bone cancer, by inhibiting the growth of tumours. Many people are aware that cancers feed on sugar, which should therefore be avoided, but research has shown that this does not apply to honey.
