National Taiwan University hosts Azalea(杜鵑花) Festival in March.

Manju is from Kathmandu, Nepal, second year graduate student Master's Program in Biodiversity at National Taiwan University in Taipei.     

Azalea is the national flower of Nepal.

She made the  rice snacks yomari (the left side looks like a half moon and the right side is fish, eating in cold currents will warm the body) and shared the "mad honey in Nepal"

*

The Himalayan giant bee (Apis laboriosa), which can make mad honey, is the largest wild bee in the world, about 3 cm long, and it mostly builds nests on mountain cliffs

"Cliff honey picking" is a mountain ethnic custom in the Himalayas

Bee collectors hold a bamboo pole in one hand and a bamboo basket in the other, and climb up the bamboo rope ladder to a height of tens of meters. If they accidentally slip their feet or hands, the consequences of "exchanging their lives for honey" will be disastrous.

What kind of plant toxins does crazy honey contain? The answer is plants of the genus Rhododendron. Rhododendron plants produce Grayanotoxin, which is the source of Crazy Honey.

The pollen and nectar of Rhododendron species grown in Taiwan do not contain high levels of saki toxin, and the source of bees making honey is not only from azaleas, so the amount of sakura toxin in honey is basically not harmful to the human body influential. Rhododendron ponticum and Rhododendron luteum are the Rhododendron luteum that produce a lot of toxins. These two Rhododendrons mainly grow in the Black Sea and Nepal, and Turkey (Black Sea region) and Nepal have been producing crazy honey place

Toxins bind to sodium ion channels on cell membranes, thereby interfering with action potentials, so toxins can affect human nerves and muscles. Symptoms of poisoning caused by consumption of honey that contains a large amount of toxins from sakibaru are known as "honey fever". Common symptoms of rabid honey disease include: irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, difficulty breathing, vomiting, and weakness of limbs.
