I eat a lot of onions in my food- to the point where I sometimes tend to sweat sulphurous smells. Below are some suggestions for using onions against flu. But I take the view that if onions are beneficial against the flu they may very well have health benefits against cancer. So here are some postings that others have made on the use of onions:

The humble onion, best protection against the flu?
> A few day’s ago I was surfing the net looking for Swine Flu
> news when I stumbled upon a post on Above Top Secret You can
> beat Swine Flu and pneumonia!( No vaccination definitely!)
> Intrigued I read the thread with interest because the author
> was claiming you could beat The Swine Flu and Pneumonia with
> the humble Onion!
> He told a story of when he was young he became very sick
> with Pneumonia, with a very high fever and breathing
> problems, his parents where beside themselves and out of
> desperation resorted to an old wives tale from his grandmother.
> The boy’s mother chopped an onion, placed it into a bowl and
> poured boiling water onto the onion and placed the bowl
> beside the boy’s bed, the boy much to his parents surprise
> woke up the next morning with no fever and breathing normal

> Well I found it a very interesting story but didn’t think

>My Greatgrandma was a firm believer in onion poltices, where cooked
onions were slathered deeply over the chest and covered by a flannel
cloth for congestion.
