It seems innocuous, but honey actually can pose health risks in some cases. Proponents of honey warn there is a potential for the potential of an allergic reaction to it. Honey also can contain bacteria, which can cause infant botulism, so health officials warn that infants under 12 months old should not consume honey because their immune systems are not fully developed.

Does eating honey pose any health risks?

When should I take my child to a doctor for an infection?
UCLA Health answeredOne big question that parents are faced with is when they should have their child seen by a doctor. Infections with just runny nose and minimal or no fever can be observed by the parents. However, illnesses with significant fever or overall distress and those that are not improving after five days or so should usually be seen or discussed with the child’s doctor.
What is the amount of soy a person should have?
The issue of soy and isoflavone activity is in question today based on its potential effect on estrogen levels. Until more definitive research is available, 1 serving per day should be a safe level for anyone, including those who have a current or family history of estrogen-induced health issues (such as breast and ovarian cancer). If you are not at risk of these types of health issues and wish to use more soy products, 2 to 3 servings (some professionals suggest as many as 5) can be safely used. Soy foods can offer unique health benefits for most everyone when consumed daily in moderation.Helpful? 4 people found this helpful.
