Very Important ....especially for those who love to cook and eat ONIONS!

非常重要. . . .特別是喜歡烹調及吃洋蔥的人! 


In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

洋蔥戰勝細菌 - 聽雪 - NorthWest

1919年, 当流感造成了四千万人死亡时, 有一位医生到各地农场去探视, 看是否可以帮助人们战胜流感。很多农民和他们家庭感染了流感,很多人因此而死亡。

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

这位医生来到一家人家。出乎预料, 这家的每一个人都非常健康。医生询问这家的做法与其他人家有何不同, 这家的妻子说她在家里的每一个房间( 那时大概也就是两间吧) 里放置了一颗没有剥皮的洋葱。医生无法置信, 因此就问是否可以要一颗洋葱以了放在显微镜下观察观察。她给了他一颗。医生观察时真的在洋葱上发现了流感病菌。显然, 洋葱吸收了病菌, 因此让这家人保持健康。

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in NZ. She said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work... ( And no, she is not in the onion business.)

如今, 我从亚利桑那州我的朋友那里听到类似的故事。她说几年前她的很多僱员感染流感, 她的很多顾客也是如此。次年, 她在她的理髮店里放了几个果盘, 里面放了一些洋葱。令她吃惊的是, 她的员工没有一个生病的。看来洋葱真的起作用。 ( 真的, 她并不做洋葱的生意。)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

故事的核心是, 买一些洋葱吧, 把它们摆放在你的家里的果盘里。如果你是坐办公室的, 在你的办公室里, 或者办公桌下面, 或者在柜子顶部放置几颗洋葱吧。试试看效果怎麽样。我们去年做了, 没有人得流感。

If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better. If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case.

如果这样做可以帮助你和你所爱的人流感冒, 那就太好了。如果你仍然得流感冒, 也许会是比较轻微的症状。

Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!

不管结果如何, 你又会有什麽损失呢? 除了几颗洋葱之外!

Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with this most interesting experience about onions :

下面是后续。我把这个送给我在奥尔良的朋友, 她经常给我一些健康方面的建议。她反复说了关于洋葱的最有趣的实验:

Thanks for the reminder. I don't know about the farmers story...but, I do know that I contacted pneumonia and needless to say I was very ill...I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion put one end on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar...placing the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs... sure enough it happened just like that...the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.

感谢她的提示。我不知道那个农民的故事, 但是我知道我得了肺炎。无需说, 我病的不轻。我读到一篇文章, 建议把洋葱的两头切掉, 插在叉子上, 然后把叉子 放在花瓶里, 晚上放在病人身旁。据说, 洋葱会因为病菌而在次日清晨变黑。果然, 事情跟说的完全一样。洋葱看起来糟透了, 但我却开始好起来。

A nother thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.


But here is the other important side to remember.




I have used an onion which has been left in the fridge, and sometimes I don't use a whole one at one time, so save the other half for later.

我曾经使用雪柜中馀下来的洋葱, 有时我不会使用整个洋葱, 馀下来的就留作下次使用。

Now with this info, I have changed my mind.....will buy smaller onions in the future.

如今有了这些资讯, 我会改变策?. . . . . .日后买些较细小的洋葱。

I had the wonderful privilege of touring Mullins Food Products, Makers of mayonnaise. Mullins is huge, and is owned by 11 brothers and sisters in the Mullins family. My friend, Jeanne, is the CEO.

有幸地我参观 Mullins Food Products 工厂,沙拉油的生产商。Mullins 工厂很大,由 Mullins 家族的 11 位兄弟姊妹共同拥有。我的朋友 Jeanne 是那儿的行政总裁。

Questions about food poisoning came up, and I wanted to share what I learned from a chemist.

食物中毒时有所闻, 所以和各位分享一些从药剂师所学到的知识。

The guy who gave us our tour is named Ed. He's one of the brothers. Ed is a chemistry expert and is involved in developing most of the sauce formula.. He's even developed sauce formula for McDonald's.

为我们作嚮导的是Ed。他是家族的其中一位成员。Ed 是一位化学专家, 大部份沙拉油的调配程式都是由他专门研发出来的。他甚至为麦当劳研发沙拉油配方。

Keep in mind that Ed is a food chemistry whiz. During the tour, someone asked if we really needed to worry about mayonnaise. People are always worried that mayonnaise will spoil. Ed's answer will surprise you. Ed said that all commercially- made Mayo is completely safe.

记住Ed 是一位食品化学能手。参观期间, 某人询问我们是否需要担心沙拉油。人们经常担心沙拉油会变坏。Ed 的答案令人感到意外。Ed 说所有在市场上售卖的沙拉油是完全安全的。

"It doesn't even have to be refrigerated. No harm in refrigerating it, but it's not really necessary." He explained that the pH in mayonnaise is set at a point that bacteria could not survive in that environment. He then talked about the quaint essential picnic, with the bowl of potato salad sitting on the table and how everyone blames the mayonnaise when someone gets sick.

『沙拉油甚至无需冷藏。将它冷藏亦无妨但非必要。(注意: 在外国较乾燥低温的环境下可能无需冷藏)』他解释, 沙拉油的酸硷度是设定至细菌无法生存的状态。然后他讲述有些人在野餐时, 吃了放在桌上的马铃薯沙拉后感到不便归因于沙拉油。

Ed says that when food poisoning is reported, the first thing the officials look for is when the 'victim' last ate ONIONS and where those onions came from (in the potato salad?). Ed says it's not the mayonnaise (as long as it's not homemade Mayo) that spoils in the outdoors. It's probably the onions, and if not the onions, it's the POTATOES.

Ed 说, 当收到食物中毒的报告后, 调查员首先会询问‘中毒者'最后一次吃洋葱是什麽时间和那些洋葱是从那里来的(在马铃薯沙拉中?) Ed 说问题并非出自处于室外的沙拉油变坏所引致(除非是家中自製的)。可能是洋葱所为, 如果不是洋葱, 那就是马铃薯。

He explained, onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked onions. You should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion. He says it's not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in your refrigerator.


It's already contaminated enough just by being cut open and out for a bit, that it can be a danger to you (and doubly watch out for those onions you put in your hotdogs at the baseball park!)

洋葱在切开一点点时经已被污染, 可能对您有害( 需要加倍注意带往棒球场放在热狗包内的洋葱! )

Ed says if you take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy you'll probably be okay, but if you slice that leftover onion and put on your sandwich, you're asking for trouble. Both the onions and the moist potato in a potato salad, will attract and grow bacteria faster than any commercial mayonnaise will even begin to break down.

Ed 说如果将馀下来的洋葱完全烹熟可能还可以, 但如果将馀下来的洋葱切开放在三明治中, 你便自寻烦恼。洋葱和马铃薯沙拉中浸湿了的马铃薯, 都非常吸引细菌, 细菌的繁殖速度较快, 即使市场上买来的任何沙拉油都会开始变坏。

So, how's that for news? Take it for what you will. I (the author) am going to be very careful about my onions from now on. For some reason, I see a lot of credibility coming from a chemist and a company that produces millions of pounds of mayonnaise every year.'

那麽, 有何高见? 就我个人所知, 从今以后, 我(本文作者)将会非常慎重处理我的洋葱。对于来自每年生产无数沙拉油公司的化学专家所提供的宝贵资料, 我觉得非常实惠。

Also, dogs should never eat onions. Their stomachs cannot metabolize onions .....

同时, 切勿给狗隻吃洋葱。它们的胃部?能消化洋葱. . . . . .

Please remember it is dangerous to cut onions and try to use it to cook the next day, it becomes highly poisonous for even a single night and creates Toxic bacteria which may cause Adverse Stomach infections because of excess Bile secretions and even Food poisoning.

紧记, 切开了的洋葱留作日后使用是非常危险的, 即使一晚它便变得毒性非常高, 产生有毒细菌可能会引致胆汁分泌过多导致肠胃炎甚至食物中毒。

Please pass it on to all you love and care.
