BEE POLLEN: NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT

Sen. [Tom] Harkin [D-IA] began his June 24 [1993] OAM Hearings with the personal story of his own encounter with alternative medicine:

Harkin was a self-described "half-a-box-of-tissues a day" man, who took a full panoply of prescription and over-the-counter medications. "I've got to tell you, an alternative treatment worked for me," he began. "I've suffered from severe allergies all my life, and conventional medicine really no longer did anything for me. So one day, a friend of mine recommended that I try bee pollen tablets."

At the urging of a persistent pollen proponent, 76-year-old retired Arizona businessman Royden Brown, Harkin first took 12 capsules of the pollen. Brown said to wait 10 minute and then see if anything happened. It didn't. So Harkin took 12 more.

The results, said the Iowa Democrat, were nearly miraculous. Soon his eyes began to clear.

"Little bit by little bit I noticed my allergies clearing up," he said in amazement. "I would say that in five days, my allergies were completely gone. Now it's to the point where if I get an attack, I take about six of them, and it'll stop immediately. I feel great...and all I have taken is bee pollen. It is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen."
