Ben,
I have mentioned this before and I?ll say it again.
I have a good friend who, about 20 years ago was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Her husband left her, she lost her job and house. She was so depressed, she wanted to end her life. She knew she was allergic to bees and bought a hive. The bee stings saved her. She gets a sting every day to keep the cancer under control. She is still alive and well today.

Wow! That is amazing! I love hearing these encouraging testimonies!
Jeremiah 5:21 King James Version 
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

More about the benefits of honey are being discussed on the topic: "Honey - it's not just for breakfast anymore..."

This is one of my favorite beekeeping stories I've ever heard. 
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

I've only been keeping for a year now, so I'm still rather new to it all. That said I've never worn any protection except some rubber coated gloves. They definitely don't protect against stings but they grip well and breath better than nitrile gloves. I've received a few stings, sometimes a few, sometimes none. The inside the nose one rings true @Michael Bush, your eyes definitely water from that one

I like getting the occasional sting.  There is something invigorating about it.  I do not like getting a lot of them all at once...

I share those same sentiments Michael
