  • Antibiotic-Resistant Pathogens Essay

    that the authors brings up in this entire article, is that if a country does not have access to antibiotics, but they have access to honey, they will still have a way to help the body fight the rise of the antibiotic-resistant pathogens. Another point of note, is that if the testing proves viable, then this will give more options to doctors who are in areas where it is hard to get normal medications. Missing Points While the writer is seemingly excited by the prospect of mead and its effects, there is not a lot of production challenges that are listed or mentioned. One of the phenomena not taken into account is the overall lowering of the bee populations around the world. With the honey bee population going down, the production of mead will become more and more expensive. The price of honey going up due to the slow dying off of the bee populations means less honey for mead production. This means that even if the tests prove to be successful, the price of this “elixir” as the writer puts it, will skyrocket. There is also no mention of the alcohol content of the mead, as mead is an alcoholic drink. There will be certain places that the mead will not be put into use, say America for an example. America has set a drinking age of 21 years of age. If you are under that age drinking is problematic at best. Something else to think over is the unnamed brewery. Have the scientists teamed up with a reputable brewery, or are they a start-up that has yet to prove themselves? If they…

  • Personal Narrative: My First Experience With A Bee

    At the time I was around 4 or 5 years old and just teetering around the house when I saw a yellow and black insect buzzing around the ceiling of my bedroom. I remember becoming mesmerized by the seemingly random flight pattern, and for some reason I wanted to hold it. So I proceeded to do what any other 4 year old would do, I climbed on top of my bed and caught the flying bee. This action was unfortunately, then followed by a sharp sting paired with many tears. Many people’s first experience…

    the leaf and the organism that fed on it would be a parasitic one. The leaf is not benefitting, but the organism is gaining nutrients it needs to survive. Another relationship between a plant and an organism I observed was that of a bee and a dandelion. The dandelions were spread all throughout the grass in the area I was sitting in. The bee was a bumblebee with black and yellow stripes. It was somewhat furry as well in its coating. In this case, there was a mutually symbiotic relationship. The…
