Hey guys, so apparently eating lots of raw or unpasteurized Honey can lead to cancer (liver cancer) by way of intaking excessive amounts of pyrrolizidine alkaloids.

Is this true and what are your thoughts on this recent finding?

>> No.11378363

It's only especially concentrated in a certain type of honey, but even then you are not going to eat so much honey to have a major exposure. The biggest exposure is from grain and eggs. I doubt it's significant since that would be easy to see in epidemiological studies of liver cancer.

If you're actually worried then you probably just deserve liver cancer, since it was just explained to you that more common foods would have already given you liver cancer in the first place.

>> No.11378430

But was it though? That study seems a bit obsolete and bear in mind that raw and unpasteurized honey is not processed to the same extent the other food items are.
Nobody deserves such a thing.

How will the honey shills on this board every recover?

>> No.11378443

Pasteurization has nothing to do with it. Don't worry about it. You sound like a bit of a hypochondriac.

>> No.11378453

Generically arguing that food has been processed isn't an argument in favor of reduced exposure.

The only argument I would find credible against that study, which is really just a summation of decades of uncontroversial data, is that it is clearly specific to Australia.

>> No.11378466

Would not processing or pasteurization of honey be one of the more effective ways to cause pyrrolizidine alkaloids to thereby be made inert?

Name a reason people would process honey other than to save costs somehow.

Don't say they'd do it in order to comply with government regulation, virtually no government regulates honey very much because it lasts a long time and is just something bees make.

>pyrrolizidine alkaloids


Foud PAs in honey. The putative origin was Echium species,


endemic to

North Africa, mainland Europe to Central Asia and the Macaronesian islands,.

The fact is the LD50 is 1.8g/kg in rats. Thats going to be a gigantic amount of honey one would have to consume to reach that level in PAs.

The truth is the constituents in any honey are going to be a consequence of many factors, including where they foraged for pollen.

But what about Grayanotoxins -?- are in MUCH more common plants:

>produced by plants in the family Ericaceae, specifically members of the genera Rhododendron, Pieris, Agarista and Kalmia.[3] The genus Rhododendron alone encompasses over 750 species that grow around the world in parts of Europe, North America, Japan, Nepal and Turkey.

Is it dangerous? MAYBE


also, fatally:

>One of the earliest accounts of mass poisoning dates back to the first century BCE when Roman troops were allegedly poisoned with honey by the Heptakometes of Turkey. The Roman soldiers were reported to be confused and vomiting and subsequently defeated in battle after eating the honey. We now believe that they were given honey made from the nectar of the flowering plant Rhododendron luteum.

>> No.11381271

Wow. Thank you so much Anon.

But out of curiosity, how much honey would a person have to eat for it to be dangerous as you showcase in equivalence to the 1.8/kg in rats?

>> No.11381348

Fucking everything gives you cancer. And smoking gives you every cancer. Smoking gives you pancreatic and bladder cancer for fuck sake. And sometimes you just get cancer for no good goddamn reason. Its stochastic.

Fuck it. You still have a 1/5ish chance of dying of cancer regardless of what you do.

Well, looks like the only way to reduce your chances of getting cancer is eating bitter vegetables, tasteless beans, nuts that taste like wood, and not eating anything that has remotely any taste to it.

According to studies literally everything increases your chances of cancer except from disguisting boring shit. I just read a study that even fish increases your chances of cancer despite reading that it had the opposite effect a couple of years ago.

>> No.11382814
