Ok, Ok many people feel that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday. That’s fine but don’t ruin it for the rest of us. I do not particularly care about the whole “gift receiving and giving” aspect.

Do you believe in ‘Old Wives Tales’?


When I get a cold I will do ANYTHING to get better FAST! I literally have had 5 colds in the past 20 years. I have an immune system of steel!

So I heard the old wives’ tale of putting a peeled onion in a bowl in your room and it absorbs bacteria.

Have you heard this?

Onions and the Flu

Q: Can Raw Onion Prevent the Flu?

A: There is no scientific evidence that a cut raw onion absorbs germs or rids the air of toxins/poisons.

A wives tale that dates back as far as the 1500’s claims that placing a cut raw onion in rooms throughout a residence could protect its occupants from getting the bubonic plague.

Long before germs were discovered, the dominate belief was contagious diseases were spread by miasma, or “noxious air.”

While false, this belief remained part of folk medicine through the 19th century claiming to ward off epidemics like smallpox, influenza, and other “infectious fevers.”
