Propolis Could Have Genotoxic Effects in High Concentrations

Genotoxic Potential of Turkish Propolis in Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes
Die Pharmazie. 2006 Jul;61(7):638-40

Propolis is a natural product that is collected by the honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) from plants. The in vitro genotoxic potential of propolis in human lymphocytes was investigated…

The differences between the control and exposed cells were statistically significant (p < 0.05). Increasing SCE rates showed that propolis could have genotoxic effects in high concentrations...
