    ..We concluded that the honey H(2)O(2) was involved in oxidative damage causing bacterial growth inhibition and DNA degradation, but these effects were modulated by other honey components...

    API Medicals, Brock University St Catharines, ON, Canada
    Front Microbiol 3:36. 2012
    ..In conclusion, we have demonstrated for the first time that bacteriostatic effect of honeys on MRSA and VRE was dose-dependently related to generation of (•)OH from honey H(2)O(2)...
