This does not surprise me. Furthermore, any perceived benefits from ingesting pollen as a nutritional supplement are of the placebo variety, since pollen is encapsulated, and passes through the digestive tract unchanged and undigested.

On a closely related note, the best preventive for anaphylaxis from bee stings is to get stung several times a year starting BEFORE you have a reaction. Anaphylactic allergies to bees are almost entirely caused by exposure to inhaled bee protein without accompanying stings. The risk of anaphylaxis in the general population is 1/10,000, but in the population of people who are exposed to bees regularly (breathing traces of bee protein) but not getting stung, the risk spikes up to 1/60. Beekeepers who get stung don't generally get anaphylaxis but their non-beekeeping (unstung) relatives do. I don't know if stings would protect from pollen induced anaphylaxis but I suspect so, since there is definitely going to be bee protein in any pollen samples from a bee hive.

Hey, Mitch McConnell. It's against my moral and ethical standards to provide lifetime health care benefits to Congress members who try to impose their own religious voodoo on the constituency they are elected to represent. And I am your employer.

And all of you anti-birth control Christian fundamentalists and Catholics out there who have reached 40 or beyond and only had two or three kids—don't try to tell us you didn't use birth control. If you've got nine kids by 50 you can talk, although you probably shouldn't.
