    Honey given to us naturally by God
    Sugar made my man

    That should tell you everything.

    Real Raw Honey has so many health benefits you can't even put it in the same league with sugar! I don't care how much science or education you can lay out in this article or comments. You don't have to worry about all of the worries in this article if you are using what you eat! My honey never last beyond a year because we actually use it not store it.

    Remember your Chemistry! Honey gets its sweetness from the monosaccharides fructose and glucose, both 6 carbon sugars. Table sugar is sucrose, an organic 12 carbon compound disaccharide composed of the monosaccharides glucose and fructose with the molecular formula C12H22O11. Our digestion breaks sucrose down to fructose and glucose which supplies our bodies with energy. There are no health advantages to honey over table sugar, but consumption of either to excess is not healthy and both will cause obesity and tooth decay unless you brush your teeth to remove the bacteria.

    Refined sugar rots your teeth, and I don't think honey does. Cancerous tumors thrive on refined sugar, so I hear.

    Adding too much water to honey can make it spoil. When heating honey in the microwave I recommend using low power. Honey bear containers can melt in high microwave settings. Honey usually won't go bad in storage. It will darken overtime, but is still fine to eat.
