So I know probably most of you know that there have been tons of bad honey flooding the market from China, India and elsewhere. I found an article I thought would be of interest.

Thanks Squatchy! A good read. You do know it's from 2011, right? I wonder if the industry has changed, due to the testing, and if there has been any follow up studies? It would also be nice to see the raw data and results.

I'm getting ready to buy a couple of buckets of honey, at a large apiary in MA, and have been wondering why a 5 gallon bucket of raw Wildflower is $40 cheaper than filtered Wildflower? You would think that the time and effort required, for filtration, would make it more expensive, not less........

Found this article, from New Zealand, that references the same 2011 study, so I'm guessing there is no updated info. Check out the stats on pesticides and weed killers!
