Honey is the only food including all substances necessary to sustain life, including enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and water; and it’s the only food, containing pinocembrin, an antioxidant associated with improved brain functioning.
Bees are the only insects that produce food that humans eat.
Like ants, honey bees communicate with one another by “dancing.”
Like rats, bees use their advanced olfactory, stamina and flying abilities to detect explosives. A hive of 40,000-65,000 bees costs USD $100 and can be trained in two hours. Bees can also signal environmental anomalies, and bee-hive samples (wax, honey, pollen) can highlight environmental contaminants in an area.
