Found inWashington post, Aug. 7, 2007: p. F5 ("Honey isn't the only bee product that has excited interest over time for its potentially medicinal properties. Bee venom, bee pollen (flower pollen that bees collect), royal jelly (a substance secreted from the glands of worker bees) and propolis (a tree resin that bees use to seal their hives) are all widely touted on the Web as 'natural' therapeutic substances, said by their vendors to treat everything from rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis to anxiety and sexual disorders. But while scientific evidence for the use of honey to dress wounds is growing, research supporting claims for other bee products is largely lacking. All fall under the rubric of apitherapy -- the medicinal use of bee products -- and comprise a durable niche of alternative medicine.")
