Bad news for manuka honey users

Well I have been an advocate of manuka honey in the past because of its natural antibiotic properties.

But those properties were linked to an unknown substance. It turns out the antimicrobial substance is methylglyoxal.

Methylglyoxal is unfortunately a genotoxin than causes irreversible damage to your genes & chromosomes.

So I can no longer encourage the use of this honey for its antibiotic properties.
