This paper is the first publication to show that bacteria can’t develop resistance to Leptospermum honey – an incredibly important finding, with huge medical implications.

Antibacterial resistance is arguably one of the largest issues in modern medicine, and an increased use of this type of honey would help to combat the issue in certain situations. As well as providing much needed options for the treatment of certain infections.
