Onions to combat the Flu

I think I will go out and buy some onions.

Worth a try...we've got nothing to lose by trying ..

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this
Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help
them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had
contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise,
everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the
farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she
had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home,
(probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't
believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and
place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did
this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously
absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said
that several years ago many of her employees were coming down
with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year
she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her
surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work.. (And no,
she is not in the onion business.)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in
bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two
in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try
it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got
the flu.

If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all
the better. If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case..

Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on
