    I am a 53 year old male in good health but with a family history of diabetes and heart disease. I take 4 teaspoons of honey in my tea. Is this good or bad for my health?

    Thanks.

    I have been told that although honey will elevate your sugar level it will not harm your heart or kidneys because it is a natural sweetner. Please be sure to select the darkest honey you can as it contains more nutrients.  Good luck!
