Interventions with honey in cancer were systematically reviewed based on three databases (AMED, CINHAL, MEDLINE), as a mandatory tool for evidence-based medicine. The information was categorized using hand search (number of articles in brackets) into three sets: 1. Supportive care for human cancer (4). 2. Therapeutical uses of honey in cancer models in vivo (3). 3. Experimental uses of honey and flavonoids in cultured cancer cells (7). Honey type, dosage, time sequence, organ with cancer, patients, intervention, conclusions, follow-up, authors and countries are presented for each study.
