I have had cause to publish this piece sometimes in 2010, but I find the need to repeat it especially given the fallacy being peddled that honey and refined sugar are the same. Science is never a child of assumption. It is born and nurtured by facts. But in our country some “scientists” make weighty pronouncements that the public take as gospel truth particularly on nutrition, health and healing without recourse to elementary controlled experiment. Otherwise, what is the basis of equating honey with refined sugar? Perhaps because the two products are sweet, honey is not different from refined sugar, according to science by assumption. In fact, these apostles of science by assumption have succeeded in indoctrinating diabetics and people without diabetes to keep sweet fruits and vegetables at arm’s length if they want to be hale and hearty. This is stupid science, at least for two reasons. One, there is clear difference between natural sugar (honey) and artificial sugar (refined sugar) in terms of reaction in the body. Two, there are three major types of sugar in natural honey as opposed to refined sugar, which is solely sucrose.
