Thinking about cures, I've seen on Facebook and heard from others that eating local honey cures you of allergies.
I think the logic is that local honey contains pollen from the plants that make you ill and by consuming it or maybe the process of making honey from it there is some sort of effect.
Not only is this not biologically-based, some ecological thinking could demonstrate why this shouldn't work.
Allergies are caused by our immune system responding to pollen that we inhale or get in our eyes. The plants that cause allergies, therefore, must be plants that have wind pollination and produce copious amounts of pollen. See where this is going? Ragweed is an example and so are most tree species that cause spring allergies. Honey is the regurgitated nectar from plants that are bee pollinated. That type of pollen is larger and sticky and doesn't get blown around and doesn't cause the allergies that most people suffer from. So, even if eating honey did make you "immune" or suppress the immune system (would you really want that?) then it still wouldn't help because you're eating goldenrod and aster pollen (if there's pollen at all).
