A Cedar honey farm lost approximately $15,000 worth of bee pollen to sticky-fingered thieves on Sunday, the Nanaimo Daily News reported October 3rd. The article, “Apiary feels sting as thieves steal bee pollen,” noted that the culprits took approximately 500 pounds of pollen from Fredrich's Honey during the night by breaking into a locked building where the goods were stored. Theo Fredrich, whose father started Fredrich's Honey in 1966, commented, ‘We can't collect it again until mid-July 2014. Farming is hard on a good day and to have someone take half of what you produce in a year is just not great.’ (http://www.nanaimodailynews.com/news/apiary-feels-sting-as-thieves-steal-bee-pollen-1.647317#sthash.Y8jJJw5o.dpuf)

This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to explore the benefits of bee pollen, and take a closer look at how it can help cure common skin complaints. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘It may sound like something from a myth, but bees could actually help you to look younger. These buzzing friends may be the anti-aging secret that you have been looking for, especially if the wellness and well-being of your skin is affected by acne. Acne is a disfiguring and distressing condition, which often affects teenagers but which can also affect adults, too. The chances of getting acne are reduced as you get older, and the symptoms include various types of spots, scarring and sore, red skin. In extreme cases, acne can leave you so disfigured that you would consider cosmetic surgery, so the problem should not be underestimated.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/10/could-bee-pollen-solve-your-persistent-acne-problems/#sthash.cQwRtIuN.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine explained that bee pollen has been found to be rich in vitamins and minerals – something that the skin probably doesn’t have enough of in acne sufferers. Yourwellness Magazine surmised that this may be due to a diet that is high in fat and junk food and does not contain enough vitamins and minerals, or it may be that acne sufferers’ bodies are not absorbing vitamins as well as they ought to.
