Today is the First Annual ‘World Apitherapy Day’

March 30, 2006, marks the first annual celebration of "World Apitherapy Day," an event designed to enhance international understanding of the therapeutic use and health benefits of bee products.

This date was chosen for the first annual World Apitherapy Day because it is the birth date of Dr. Philipp Terc (formerly Filip Tertsch), the first scientific researcher to investigate the medical uses of 'apitoxin," or bee venom. Terc was born on March 30, 1844, in Praporiste, Bohemia (Czech Republic).

Products promoting World Apitherapy Day are available at Cafe Press. (All proceeds will go to the non-profit World Apitherapy Network.)
