I saw a news report discussing a new wound care study (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Paper-Highlights-prnews-2943593654.html?x=0&.v=1) published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiological Infectious Diseases. They have been looking at honey as an alternative to antibiotics. They even have a honey infused wound dressing to market.

I have to track down the journal article; I'm very curious to see how they set up the study.

It dosnt talk about it in this report but, i read that the best honey to use was manuka honey. They did a test with MRSA on it I believe and the results were very promising.
