    Try cayenne pepper in your coffee for blood pressure.

    It's sounds like it's God and not the honey.

    For sore throats, I put it in tea. It causes a slight energy boost, too.

    I don't do it only but only when I have a cough or cold. Sometimes with lemon or ginger.

    Honey is concentrated sugar. I'm not sure how it's supposed to help with diabetes, even Type I.

    Indeed.
    From the (rather badly edited) site:
    "...it is difficult to define honey as “diabetic-friendly” substance. Honey’s effects on the treatment for diabetes are still under dispute. As a result, diabetic patients should consider carefully before consuming it.

    Sugar is a generic word > this should tell you there is a difference between sugar and honey
    Honeys that are supersaturated with a very high percentage of glucose, such as brassica honey, will crystallize almost immediately after harvesting, while honeys with a low percentage of glucose, such as chestnut or tupelo honey, do not crystallize. Some types of honey may produce very large but few crystals, while others will produce many small crystals.[23] ( Wiki ) and fructose and glucose are not the same
    beside the are honey of more glucose content and some of less glucose content.

    "Less" is relative here.

    While there are many types of honey, they are still almost entirely sugar (82%, the other 17% being water), be they monosaccarides, disaccarides or trisaccarides.

    How relevant is your comment ? from chemical standpoint if you know not all those chemical that you call sugar are the same thy have different chemical and physical property . The word sugar is a common name for something is sweet .

    No.
    Glucose, Fructose, Galactose, Sucrose, Maltose, Lactose.
    i.e. Monosaccarides and Disaccarides.
    Disaccarides are "healthier" in the sense that they're harder to metabolize.
    The monosaccarides are the "low-hanging fruit" of the metabolism.

    There are other sweet substances, but they are not classified as sugars.

    More or less, ~82% of honey is sugars. Another ~17% is water. That leaves ~1% that is not sugar-water.

    What do you mean by no ? Those that you just posted they are sugars but Chemically they are different , each one have its own chemical and physical property , I am not arguing who is sweeter. I just said society associate sweet wit sugar.

    I guess I don't understand your post #35 (or #37).

    They're informative, but are they relevant to the issue of whether honey is 99% sugar-water, and how healthy it might be, particularly for Diabetes?
