Taking raw honey and smoking

I seen where your raw honey contains Beta-Caratene. I heard if you are a smoker, you should not take anything that contains Beta-Caratene for it could cause a stroke. Is there any truth to this? Thanks Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,
What you have heard about beta carotene was based on a study in which smokers took synthetic beta carotene by itself in high doses.

There are very small amounts of natural beta carotene in raw honey along with many other natural anti-oxidants which will actually protect a smoker from a stroke.
