    I understand that honey is an animal product and that’s why vegans won’t eat it. But I was just wondering if it hurts the bees to keep them to get honey and beeswax? Or is it just the captivity part? I tried looking it up and couldn’t really find a simple answer so I was hoping someone on here could help me out. Thanks! (:

    Oh, Chamomile tea, even without honey, is good for sore throats. Also, decaf black tea with soy milk is very soothing. :)

    I understand now. That’s so horrible! I never thought about any of that. I’ll have to find a new product to soothe my sore throats now though. Thanks for all the replies (:

    The honey industry also contributes largely to the decreased population of bees. These small insects may seem insignificant, but in reality they are a PARAMOUNT factor in the well-being of the environment. Practices (such as those outlined in the link above) only worsen the onset of Colony Collapse Disorder.

    Honey isn’t just an animal rights concern, it’s a major environmental concern. There are many honey alternatives today, not just agave but also “honee” made from apples, rice, and other plant-based foods.

    Bees get their legs torn off in the machinery used to harvest honey plus their food is replaced with cheap sugar which kills them. It’s bad the the ecosystem. Plus honey is bee vomit so it’s gross.
