The honey industry is in a frenzy after Donald Trump's honey price announcement, with the price going up by $1.10 a pound or about 2.5% for the month.That's more than double what it was in June and is the highest price in five years.The price is expected to be $2.00 a pound for the first time since 2007, when the honey industry was hit by a price freeze.It could be a harbinger for a bigger price j...
Honey, of course, has been touted as a miracle-drug that can reverse the effects of obesity.
And it turns out that the food has some pretty strong evidence that it does, in fact, help to prevent and reverse obesity.
The study by the Australian National University’s Dr. David M. Hughes and colleagues involved nearly 40,000 people over a period of nine years and compared the levels of metabolic syndrome markers, metabolic health, and body mass index (BMI) in people who had either consumed at least one serving of Honey or were consuming the equivalent of three portions of cereal a day.
The participants were followed for eight years, and they were tracked for a period that included diet changes.
During that time, they were given a daily dose of a sugar-free, high-fiber cereal called Cereal Plus.
They also got a daily placebo and the researchers recorded their weight in kilograms (kgs).
The researchers found that participants who had consumed the cereal, or at least the equivalent, lost weight at a rate of about 10 percent.
They lost about two kilograms (three pounds) per year, compared to a rate that fell to 2 percent after five years.
The researchers also found that those who consumed Honey had lower body fat percentage than those who had not.
This means that, at least for now, there’s a lot more evidence that a diet rich in high-FODMAPs may actually help to reduce body fat and obesity.
But it also found some troubling findings.
Those who had eaten Honey experienced significantly higher rates of depression and anxiety than those whose diet was low in FODMAPS.
And the higher the prevalence of depression, the greater the risk of developing a psychotic disorder.
The authors said that while there is much more work to be done to determine whether and how honey can reduce the risk for developing a mental illness, their results suggest that it may be beneficial for some people to try a diet high in FOSBAs.
