Propolis

That's a vocabulary word I didn't know before, but I came across it in some random web surfing. Propolis is sort of like a wax-like "caulking" used by bees to seal and protect the hive (including diseases).

But the interesting thing is that is claimed to stimulate the immune system, and has antibiotic and antifungal properties. Boy, as new parents catching colds every weekend, we can use this.

I guess, there's many things that we don't know, and maybe bee technology has some new engineering and material applications, including our health. Who knows? Sometimes when I feel that modern science has investigated everything, there's always something new in something old.
