Bees – The most beneficial species of the animal kingdom for humans:
Humans cultivated bees since the ancient times. Honey is referred as therapeutical in Egyptian papyruses 3500 years ago. In the ancient Indians’ book of life it is said that life is prolonged when there is honey and milk in everyday diet. Nectar was the food of the immortal Olympian Gods. Zeus was brought up with honey by the Bee nymph. The father of medicine Hippocrates recommended it for the treatment of several diseases, and so did Aristotle who believed that honey prolongs life.
