Pollen claims

An article in is making some big claims for pollen collected by bees:
Honeybee pollen is the richest source of vitamins found in Nature in a single food, according to the institute of apiculture in Taranov, Russia.
... Bee pollen exceeds all animal sources in the amount of protein it provides.
... Many cultures around the world use [pollen] for extending life, increasing longevity, improving endurance, fortifying intestinal strength, building new blood, and even helping overcome retardation and other developmental problems with children.
... delays the appearance of palpable mammary tumors in mice
... whether you’re overweight or underweight, bee pollen will regulate your weight at its normal level.
Pollen, anyone?
