Cut the ends off an onion, stab it with a fork and put it in a jar and put in the room with a sick person and it will absorb all of the bacteria. The next morning the onion will be black with bacteria.

    There are two kinds of illnesses, bacterial and viral. Even if the onion did absorb bacteria, most colds and flus are from viruses, not bacteria.

Sorry. But this reminds me of another amazing tale about onions.

Did you know that if you cut the top off of the onion (leaving the little pig tail end on it), and then place the top of the onion which you cut, on top of your head....

you will not shed any tears while chopping onions. Yup. This was told to me by an old acquaintance from Chile.

It works at least as well as the germ absorbing onion mentioned earlier.
