On E Mails, Supermarket Tabloids And A Burned Dog


I have just received an e-mail from a friend in France.

It is about the benefits of honey, which it would appear, can reverse the results of ageing such as deafness, baldness, acne, obesity and hardened arteries etc. etc. etc.


This is sad in a way because it means that, quite unlike the beauty I greet in the mirror every day, he must see me as a horrible deaf, bald, overweight, spotty old bag!!!!!!

Ahhhh…such is life!


This is what I was sent.

If you don’t want to read it then skip the stuff in italics and continue on to read some funny, and then some truly amazing, stuff!

‘Cinnamon and Honey

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what
some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left
in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call
“crystallizing” When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the
honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is
then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so
will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and
Cinnamon: It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases.
Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today
also accept honey as a ‘Ram Ban’ (very effective) medicine for all kinds of
diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right
dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a
magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following

list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by
western scientists:

Heart Diseases:  Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread,
instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the
cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Regular use
of this process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In
America and Canada various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and
have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and
get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

Arthritis:  Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot
water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If
taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research
conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors
treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon
Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200
people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and
within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around

because of arthritis started walking without pain.

Bladder Infections:  Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of
honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the

Cholesterol:  Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder
mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to
reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours As
mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic
cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal,
pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

Colds:  Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon
lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process
will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

Upset Stomach:  Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also
clears stomach ulcers from the root.

Gas: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if
Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have
found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of
Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral

Indigestion:  Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before
food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

Influenza:  A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘
Ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Longevity:  Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly,
arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon
powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three
to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life
spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a

Pimples:  Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste.
Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with
warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in
one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most
obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to
accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

Cancer:  Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced
cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering
from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one
teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

Fatigue:  Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more
helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior
citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and
flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of
honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily
after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the
body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

Bad Breath:  People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with
one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath
stays fresh throughout the day.

Hearing Loss:  Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal
parts restores hearing.


However, because of my past highbrow reading matter, I think that the text he sent was one from the Weekly World News, in it’s issue of 17th January 1995.

The Weekly World News being a supermarket tabloid from 1979 to 2007 which also advised people that Hilary Clinton was an alien, Abraham Lincoln was a woman, crop circles have appeared in mens’ chest hair and even that Bigfoot kept a lumberjack as a sex slave …..



such amazing stories….so one must approach the statements with a pinch of salt.



We must not throw the baby out with the bathwater ( I have been wanting to say that for a long time….wondering if that has ever actually happened….if you know of a case please send a comment!)

Honey IS actually a wonderful thing.

Doctors tested some of the benefits of pure honey on non-healing wounds and ulcers a few years ago and were amazed at the results they found.
Amazing as it seems the ulcers eventually healed with no scarring.


It is even said to be effective against MRSA.

Health Talk, flu vaccine, aids, honey?

Healing Animals With Honey.

What a smashing little dog, no wonder so many people love them.

Howzat for miraculous then!


Even the government wants to give us free bee keeping equipment to encourage bee keeping.

Have yourself a sweet day.
