A doctorial thesis by the university faculty looked into the cytotoxic effects (quality of being toxic to cells) of different solutions containing olive and fig extracts dissolved in water and honey with a density of 0.001 and 0.01 mg/ml, reports IRNA. It was found that pure honey did not show any cytotoxic effect neither did fig and olive extracts dissolved in water.
