heard this from someone whose mother claimed this to be true and carried out the practice regularly when sickness was around. (do I need to mention just how long ago that was?) Marg

For what it may be worth, here is the message.


Subject: ONIONS, ONIONS....

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 families 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, to place 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


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 onions!!

Now there is a P.S. to this. 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 farmers story...but, I do know that

I contacted pneumonia and needless to say I was very ill....

I came across an article that said to cut both ends

off an onion, put one end on a fork and then place the

forked end into an empty jar...placing the jar next to

the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be

black in the morning from the germs...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.

Few things are more satisfying than seeing your own

children have teenagers of their own..

Thanks Margaret W.
