Cancer is one of the most common causes of death worldwide. Current treatments for cancer include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.

Due to this, there is a focus in research now on new and improved cancer treatments. Natural products are a focus point for this research. Honey is a natural product produced by honeybees with known anticancer effects [1-5]. Much research today is focused on honey’s constituents and potential medicinal properties. This mini review will discuss the research to date on honey and explain some mechanisms of honey’s anticancer properties.
