Highland honey kills bacteria, Glasgow study suggests

Image
Honey from bees kept in the Highlands is effective in treating infections, according to new research.

Glasgow University's School of Veterinary Medicine, which did the testing, said it could potentially be used for treating humans and animals.

Manuka honey, which is largely exported from New Zealand, is already used to help treat wounds on horses.

The new study suggests heather honey made by bees in areas near Inverness could be as useful.

Dr Patrick Pollock said supermarket-bought honey was often applied to sores on horses to fight infections.

He said the natural product was also used all over the world as a treatment for human ailments.
