Could incorporating locally grown honey into my children's diet, help with their seasonal allergies?
Not at all: It is a common misconception that eating local honey helps allergies. Local honey contains pollen from local flowers. People generally have little exposure to and aren't allergic to flower pollen (except florists). Wind pollinated trees, grasses and weeds which release huge amounts of pollen cause most allergies. Eating pollen has no effect on allergies though holding pollen under the tongue may. ...Read more
