Non-Awesome News, Honey

I've been only vaguely aware, but apparently there's some concern about honey these days. Sweet, sweet concern.

I mean, sweet honey. I think concern has kind of a chalky flavor.

Anyway, it seems some honey can be made from pollen that's contaminated with heavy metals and other non-tasty substances. Not so good. I like honey, and eat it on my bread and peanut butter all the time, so this counts as non-awesome news.

I appreciated this thorough roundup from Skepchick. In summary, you might want to buy local honey, because it's more likely to be from a clean source. Unless you live near a toxic waste dump, I guess. But I suppose in that case, honey is probably lower on your list of concerns.
