This has been circulating throughout the's interesting if nothing else!


Forget the flu shot. Just put a onion in your rooms and you will be safe.

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 onions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lori, I have heard this before. Years ago, I experimented when my oldest daughter had the flu pretty bad and her fever wouldn't break. I put an onion in the bed with her, and the fever broke that night. She was fine after that.

Wow, Maxine! I'm willing to try it!
Thankfully we haven't had any major illnesses. We continue to pray against them!
