Myth about Allergies
Consuming local honey helps relieve seasonal allergy symptoms
Many people think savoring local honey will inoculate them against the allergens in their area (or at least boost tolerance). It seems logical, but its actually airborne pollen from trees, grass and weeds that spurs spring sniffles, not large, sticky flower pollen that is carried by bees to make honey.It s true that bees collect pollen from plants and honey has pollens in it from the local area. The wind carried pollens from trees, grasses and weeds that cause seasonal allergies are very light and stay airborne for a long time. The pollen in bee honey comes from flowers, and is very heavy and falls to the ground.
