Can it really be called "craft" if it is made in a 10,000 sq ft bottling and packaging plant? drnk.ca/1DkAQ2I
.@susebraids comparing honey with sugar would be a better idea. I do know sugar works when my kids get needles vs no sugar (lots of crying)
.@susebraids I wouldn't discount it as parental bias, sugar is a known "pain killer" because it causes the brain to release dopamine
Getting stung in the ear hurts, I wouldn't recommend it. #beekeeping
@ryanfeeley cool, glad you enjoy the Abbott's Bitters. Wiser's 18 works well.
.@susebraids a placebo/sham group would be unethical to do with children. Can't really allow kids to suffer though it would make better data
"Effect of honey on cough in children." Honey seems to be at least as effective as OTC meds. drnk.ca/1wBjGMm #science #beekeeping
