wow never thought the day would come where I would have to defend onions from getting bashed Onions are a very good source of vitamin C, B6, biotin, chromium, calcium and dietary fibre. They also contain good amounts of folic acid and vitamin B1 and K. They also contain flavonoids, these compounds act as antioxidants, have a direct antitumor effect and have immune-enhancing properties. Onions contain a large amount of sulfur and are especially good for the liver. As a sulfur food, they mix best with proteins, as they stimulate the action of the amino acids to the brain and nervous system. wooooo Onions I will be letting others know this though,I still like onions but at now its good to know of health hazards I didn't know before TY OP

I thought it odd you didn't include the source link with your post. The passage you quote was presented by the source as an example of an "e-rumor" and presented as false.
I can understand wanting to consider the information, and I'm sure that many would agree with DrumsRfun, that its better to be safe then sorry. But IMO very bad form to present something as true directly from a source that claimed it is false without providing ATS members with the info.
For those who missed the source link - OP Source

It tends to get a little slimy between uses, so I rinse it with warm water before using again.

Sorry OP, no S&F for you
This story is total BS - I've seen this on FB a couple times and the gullible ignorant mob believes it.
Please see urbanlegends.about.com...
People should use normal safe food-handling practices for onions as they would with other vegetables.
This would be funny, except that its sad thinking of how many people believe this nonsense.

Use a little logic and you will easily totally refute the claims of this totally false piece of fiction.

This is nonsense, onions help keep you healthy and destroy germs and bacteria within you.
As for using Snopes for a source -
They still think jet fuel fires brought down all 3 WTC buildings.
