Eat­ing too much sugar is be­ing in­creas­ingly blamed for the Western world’s obe­sity epi­demic, but there is one type of sugar - honey - that is ac­tu­ally re­ally good for your health, ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in the Jour­nal Of Agri­cul­ture And Food Chem­istry. Sub­jects who were given honey had higher lev­els of an­tiox­i­dants in their blood plasma – and the higher your level, the bet­ter your body can com­bat the cell-dam­ag­ing free rad­i­cals that are be­hind age­ing as well as many dis­eases. With peo­ple con­sum­ing an av­er­age of more than 70kg of sugar and ar­ti­fi­cial sweet­en­ers a year, adding honey to tea or por­ridge in­stead of sugar could pro­vide mul­ti­ple health ben­e­fits, said the sci­en­tists be­hind the re­search.
