Check out Snopes on this. Totally bogus. I regularily keep partial onions in the refer for a week or more. I double zip lock bag the onion, not for protection of the onion, but to keep other foods from picking up the odor.

Wait, are you talking about bacteria or viruses? The flu is caused by a virus, and if the onions absorb bacteria, unless those bacteria suck up all the viruses, it really won't help stop the flu.

Probably has more to do with the hand washing after handling onions.......

Well, there you go being sensible [emoticon]

Either the hand washing, or raw onion breath keeping others away who might be infected

Poisonous onions!!?? I put my unused onions in zip lock bags all the time, and have never been sick and never seen an onion turn black overnight.

Now I wonder how many people will read this and pass it on as pure gospel?
