Purpose: The aim of this paper is to share clinical case reports on the effect of honey on cancer patients. Findings: In the first clinical case study, honey significantly reduced the number of leukaemia cells. The second clinical case study confirmed the findings with persuasive evidence: honey reduced the stage of the cancer cells. What is special about this case is that only honey therapy was applied without any other treatment.
Originality/value: The first clinical case study confirms the anti-cancer effect of honey on cancer patients. Practical implications: The two clinical case studies give us an indication of the effect of honey on cancer patients. It is strongly recommended that a pilot study is carried out on one type of cancer, such as breast cancer, since both incidents and mortality rates are high due to this type of cancer in Sudan.
