HONEY

Honey

Elaine writes: Honey is legal because, as the book states, it contains only single sugars (monosaccharides) which do not need microvilli enzymes (see diagrams on pages 22 and 23) in order for the two sugars of which it is  composed to be absorbed into your bloodstream. The two sugars are already in the absorbable form. However, sucrose and lactose, etc. need action of the microvilli enzymes and in people with IBD and other illnesses, research shows that these enzymes are not active.

Originally from the Long Island listserve.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
