Magic Vegetable-The Powerful Onion

>>> ONIONS – I received this article and it fit in with stories that I have heard in my past about the “ONION”, so I am passing it on as I received it. I hope that you can get some benefit from this article! 

In 1919, when flu killed 40 million people, there was a doctor who visited the
local farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.

Many of the area farmers and their families had contracted the flu and many died.

When the doctor came upon one farm, he was very surprised to find everyone there  was very healthy.  The doctor asked the farmer if there was anything special he was doing that was different or unusual.  The wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in each of the rooms of the home, (probably only two or three rooms back then).

The doctor couldn’t believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions
they had used to place it under his microscope.  She gave him one.
When he cut up one of those used onions and placed the slice under his
microscope, he found the flu virus in the onion.  It had apparently
absorbed the bacteria, thereby keeping the family healthy.

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 point of the story is: buy some onions and without removing the
dried outside layer, place them in bowls around your home.
If you work at a desk in an office, place one or two unpeeled onions in
your office where no one will care, under your desk, or even on top of
your desk 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 milder case.

What have you to lose?  Just a few bucks on onions!
Now there is a P.S. to this, for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who
regularly contributes material to me on health issues.  She replied with this most
interesting experience about onions:

Weldon,
Thanks for the reminder.  I don’t know about the farmer story,
but, I do know that when I contracted pneumonia, I was very
ill.  I came across an article that said to cut both ends off a large onion;
force a fork into one end; and then place the fork into an empty jar with
the onion resting on the opening of the jar; and, place the jar next to the
sick patient overnight. It said the onion would be black in the
morning from absorbing the germs and bad bacteria.  Sure enough.
It happened just like that…the onion was a mess and I began to feel
better.
Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed
around the room saved many from the black plague years ago.
They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.
