(I recently got this information from my father. Whether it is true, I cannot guarantee..but I know that I am willing to do anything that might help keep us healthy!)
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 placed 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 virus, 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
