Hi Honey!

Amazing facts about honey that most people have no idea about. It is amazing what kind of health benefits can be found in foods given to us by mother nature herself. Simply adding natural foods like honey in place of more fattening options can make your body feel fresh and rejuvenated. Take a moment to read through all of these interesting facts about honey and see if you learn something interesting.
1. Honey is the only non man-made sweetener which also is considered to have healing effects.
2. Honey has a pH level around 3-4 and consists of roughly 18% water. Because of this honey is a very stable substance and can last hundreds of years if properly stored.
3. Honey can reduce fat deposits found in our cardiovascular system.
4. Honey will not ferment in your stomach like refined table sugar or sucrose does. Because of this it does not subject you to a risk of bacterial infection.
5. Honey is the simplest possible molecular form of sugar, which cannot be broken down any further. This allows it to travel directly from the small intestine to the blood stream while not causing any problems to the digestive system like sucrose.
6. Honey is a top choice as fuel for burning body fat during sleep since it has an equal ratio of fructose to glucose.
7. Honey is the best substance to use to treat burns. Honey can effectively subdue pain while quickly healing a wound without scarring.
8. Vitamins as well as antioxidants are found in honey. One special antioxidant known as ‘pinocembrin’ is found only in honey.
9. Honey is known to be a very effective and safe solution to children’s coughs, even more so than over-the-counter medicines.
10. Some recent studies have shown that athletes who consumed honey before and after physical activity have recovered faster than those athletes who did not consume any honey at all.
Given your new found knowledge of honey, now hopefully you can use it’s health benefits to your advantage. Keep in mind, the more natural the honey, the better. The honey found at your local fast-food chain is not going to give you the same health benefits as fresh natural honey straight from the bees nest. Start adding small amounts of natural honey to your meals to enjoy the health benefits it can offer you.

Facts about McDonald's

Many of you have heard controversy about McDonald’s fast food (what they’re doing to obesity, they’re taking over the world, etc. etc.) Though most of these facts do not pertain to McDonalds/obesity, these ten facts can be pretty interesting.
1.  McDonalds calls people who eat their food more than once a week “Heavy Users.” And to be honest, it’s often true!
2. The first Ronald McDonald was fired for being too fat.
3. McDonalds has restaurants in over 100 countries.
4. 40% of all of American family meals are eaten outside the home.
5. 1 in every 4 Americans eat at a McDonalds on a daily basis.
6. Almost all nutritionists don’t approve of eating McDonalds more than once a month.
7. You know all those toys Toys R Us sells? McDonalds sells more toys than Toys R Us each year.
8. With all the tests scientists did, they came to the conclusion that many children can recognize McDonalds before they can even speak.
9. Despite what the advertisements say, only 7 foods on the menu completely lack sugar. Even the salads and apples have sugar.
10. To me, this is the most shocking: Americans eat over 1,000,000 animals an hour. This includes cows, pig, sheep, turkey, chicken, all animals.
I don’t mean to pick on McDonalds, many of these facts are probably true for other fast food restaurants, but McDonalds is the most widely known fast food restaraunt (as proven by fact 3.) So next time you eat at a fast food restaurant, try to remember these facts.
