I never heard of this, nor did I read through every reply, but I LOVE onions and I eat them in almost every meal. So if they can get you sick, I am Superman ( YAY me ), or if they prevent you from getting sick, well YAY me for loving onions

OP, it may be old news, but no problem in spreading the truth further. I've got a very weak immune system. Had many a flu and pneumonia's that nearly killed me.

In the last decade, I became addicted to the aforementioned. I eat anything that is hot, "oiniony", and makes you sweaty. Never caught a cold, flu or anything else since. The spicier the food, the better.

I wish Mexico bordered upon Thailand and India. I would live on the border and never be sick!

Great post. S & F.

Yes, I heard the rumour here on ATS first, during the swine flu in Bosnia (or wherever it was-forgot) epidemic.

I always have onions hanging in my wire basket - ALWAYS. Not because of the rumour though. I often have half, diced or sliced onion leftovers in the fridge. They never poisoned me.


Onions and peppers are amazing natural anti-biotics - but - I like them most because you can freeze them without blanching! This makes them easy to store.

Onions and jalapeno peppers go in almost every dish we make here ... except perhaps a bowl of cereal.


I can't have flu shots and never get the flu. Coincidence? Maybe. I think it has more to do with my hyperactive immune system and not the onions.

An onion a day keeps the doctor, and dentist and ... (everybody) AWAY! Nyar nyar nyar!

I know that the smell given off by an onion can cause death to some sorts of microbes when it is in the air. I heard about this onion being a magnet to germs but I doubt if it directly has any basis. Onions are good for you but can actually cause problems for people if over consumed. There are also some people who are allergic to onions because they are allergic to some sulfates..The information I have read is inconclusive but at the same time has a real basis for saying onions are good for us.

Guys, why throw them away? Why not put a piece in each room...? To soak up even more bacteria!!! An onion on every shelf, and a bacteria in every onion!

Shouldnt the title of this thread be: "Onions Can Prevent You From Getting Really, Really sick!" ?

As for you can use them as a way to absorb the flu and presumably other bacteria. See what I am getting at?

Well, the mods changed my opening post because I didn't have a source for what I posted, so it does go against what the title says now. Talk about a flip flop! Ha! Sorry. Didn't mean to mislead anyone with the title.

The information I posted was talking about how onions should be eaten as soon as they are peeled, otherwise they become a bacterial sponge and make people sick. You will see the first few pages discussing it. Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you! Before reading your post I'm sitting here thinking that I've always had onions sitting in the fridge for at least a couple of months. If they don't get soft, I use them. The only thing I've noticed about old onions is they sometimes get a barely discernible bitter taste, but still not worthy of throwing out.


I still have my onion! ....
Even after Thanksgiving and the weekend I haven't tossed it yet.

I'm down to just the center of it, but check this out... It's trying to sprout!!
There are faint green chutes sprouting out of it now - it's been alive and trying to make a comeback the whole time.

Why in gods name wouldn't you just buy a fresh onion?!


LoL... I'm just a dirty hippie, pushing the limits of good taste and good hygiene.


I actually have 2 that I haven't peeled yet, but they're the same age as the other.

Oh oh, I'm in really big trouble then! I usually use half of an onion and save the other half for the next meal. I do put it in a ziploc bag before putting it back in the fridge. Does that make a difference?

this is relay interesting because this coupled with the fact that onions are an excellent pesticide makes be believe that the illness could have been spread by airborne means maximizing the unknown potential of an union i wonder if an union in a small bit of soil with an onion in it placed next to a bed could work as a cheep nonirritating mosquito net who knows that could be why the despise didn't spreed and just dispersed to be picked up by the union but its been a farmers best friend for a long time is it time to make it cost effective to stop malaria in Africa and other hot zones surprised this hasn't been tried by now. you can grow unions practically everywhere though i think and they will be grown in a year whats that buy some cheap grow some swap out 6monthly
