Bee M.D. Aims To Make Bees, Humans Healthy

Bee M.D. is sweet on honeybees. The new throat drop launching in August will align with the National Honey Board to promote the protection of bees

Donations at Sponsorabee.com and proceeds from sales of Bee M.D. will fund academic research to protect honeybees. Graphics on the biodegradable packaging and the Web site will tell the story about colony collapse disorder–a mysterious phenomenon in which bees abandon hives en masse. Pesticides, a virus, or inadequate food supply are suspected as possible factors, but the cause is undetermined.

Created by BestSweet, the new product will be made of 40% honey
