A lot of people don’t think honey can be dangerous and typically that’s true. However, a special type of honey known as “mad honey” can be problematic and even deadly.
It contains grayanotoxins, which alter sodium channel activity and can significantly depress the cardiovascular system.
Cardiovascular changes and fainting can potentially result in death. Fatalities are uncommon in modern times primarily due to relatively easy treatment in hospitals.

The Drug Classroom (TDC) is dedicated to providing the type of drug education everyone should have. Drugs are never going to leave our society and there has never been a society free from drugs.
Therefore, it only makes sense to provide real education free from propaganda.
TDC doesn’t advocate drug use. Rather, we operate with the intention of reducing the harm some substances can bring.
