This tidbit of information comes from an anonymous blogger and pondered my interest. I'm not sure on the validity of the writers view points, but needless to say the article was quite entertaining.
Take a read and let me know your thoughts?
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 it 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. Onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. The plague killed over 20 million people. Onions have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties. This is the other note, lots of times when we have stomach problems we don't know what to blame. Maybe it's the onions that are to blame. Onions absorb bacteria and is the reason they are so good at preventing us from getting colds and flu's and is the very reason we shouldn't eat an onion that has been sitting for a time after it has been cut open! (??)
LEFT OVER ONIONS ARE POISONOUS he explained, onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked onions. You should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion.. He says it's not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in your refrigerator.
