Honeydew honeys are better antioxidants than nectar honeys

...y depends greatly on where honeybees collect their raw materials. There are two key types of source. First, honeybees can collect nectar from flowers, and this generates nectar honeys. Secondly they can collect fluids that exude from plants, usually after the plants have been visited by a plant-sucking i...

With cellulosic ethanol, there is no food vs. fuel debate according to MSU scientist

... Biobased Technologies. "We'll be able to get more raw material out of one acre of land." Dale said that many of these energy crops will be grown on land that isn't prime agricultural acreage. In other words, they'll be grown on marginal land that isn't growing a commercial crop right now. "The evi...

Solution to bacterial mystery promises new drugs
