bdmesq: Honey: Potential Benefits for Diabetes, Overweight, Hypertension, Restorative Sleep and More: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"
Honey is a sweetener which may actually help with diabetes and obesity. It's already known as an anti-germicidal. Honey found in Egyptian sarcophagi thousands of years old has been found to still be edible.
Date syrup is a sweetener which does not raise blood sugar! Interesting, huh?
The message here is that foods found closer to their natural state are usually better for us. Another message is that if you are already diabetic or borderline this information does not give you the freedom to now go crazy on these sweeteners. You must still be under medical care and incorporate these into your diet under supervision.
