Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming “Wow, What a Ride!”

healthy living ~ Onions kill Flu Virus

this is another article that I post yearly- with Flu Season nearing there are other things we can do, and this is one I love and use every year. It Works!!!!! 

Onions - Can flu virus be absorbed in onions? history and science says... maybe so.

Flu season is coming upon us and, in my constitutionally protected opinion, I feel that in many cases vaccines cause more problems than they help.  I grew up the child of a chemical pharmacist who believed that as well; other than several factors, my father, believed that a child needed to develop a strong immune system that would not be developed through simply being vaccinated. Polio & Small Pox were two vaccines he advocated. Measles, Chicken Pox, Mumps, etc.—up to a certain age, the body would be better off in adulthood if these were acquired naturally by contacting the disease in childhood.  After a certain age, and I believe it was just before puberty, if you did not contact a childhood disease, then, the risk factors outweighed the benefits. 

 I have yet to ever get a flu shot or the flu and for 20 years, I worked right in the hubbub of these nasty germs, having worked in an emergency room all day.  I also truly believe that simple pure soap and water and hand washing is your biggest ally.  All these fandangled antibacterial products have done nothing but create “designer bugs” that will be humanities downfall.  I also think that the more rain and bad weather we have from October to March helps keep the illnesses at bay. Why? Because there is less travel, people stay home and out of public areas, and the “bugs” stay home with them.  Just a thought.

What's the buzz about onions: if you put an onion in a bowel in each room of your house it will absorb any flu virus that would be in your home.  Worth a try... we've got nothing to lose by trying.

A little history on this theory:
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.

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. A friend did it last year and they 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!!!!!!
