This is ...? After the 1st world war, a pandemic of influenza took hold globally, It came to be known as 'Spanish Flu' also known clinically as, H1N1. Before antibiotics it was observed that 'milkmaids' didn't suffer from diseases, then they found the 'Cow Pox' bacteria, and all the milkmaids that had contracted the bacteria where immunised by the cow pox and lived happily ever after. Here endeth the first lesson.

The claims in the message are false. The claim that onions are "magnets" for bacteria has no scientific validity. Correctly handled and stored raw or left-over onions are no more inherently unsafe to eat than other types of food.

Food folklore: Onions 'attract' or 'collect' infectious bacteria

The notion that onions are a "bacteria magnet" may stem from an old wives' tale dating at least as far back as the 1500s, when it was believed that distributing raw onions around a residence guarded against the bubonic plague and other diseases by "absorbing the elements of infection." Believe it or not, though it has no scientific basis whatsoever, some people still believe this today.

So, in a nutshell... :bullshit:

You can't see a virus under a microscope; the flu is caused by viruses, not bacteria; whatever bacteria the onion "absorbed" wasn't mentioned as being seen under the microscope; bacteria don't have anything to do with anything anyways.

You are slightly incorrect, but as you said, Virus and bacsilia can't be seen under a microscope, but they can under a spectroscope. "It's Dead."

what a crock of garbage. i have onion in my dry storage thats been there for a month, i can cut it open, cook it with my pasta, and leave the other half in tinfoil, and in a container and left in the fridge........ 20 years later im still alive. and half of the time is from my family cooking. and there still alive.

listen great read but no scientific backing, no references. no studies.

My best friend is a Executive chef and he has graduated from the most prestigious culinary school, the CIA. he has cooked all around the world and no chef has ever told him this.

lol cool story bro.

This is 500+ year old mystery it seems, it has been just disregarded as bull shit by many, if it is, who knows, i dont. But there's normally some truth to old wives tales, also on top of that we all know that belief is the most powerful thing in the universe.
Just to let some people know, for posting this old myth my computer got hit. so somethings bloody up, people going to get you if you talk about onions and stuff, some people dont want you to believe in the onions it seems. I was only trying to help, I sense Evil about here, im going, children to think of. I dont like people attacking my computer, it worries me. Oh well

PLUR


Onion believer.
