THE ONION MYTH

The internet is filled with many articles, blog post and claims. One of them is the onion myth that’s being circulated for a long time now. It is believed that onions absorb bacteria present in the air when cut open and exposed to the environment. In fact, when I first came across this theory I believed it myself till I did a proper research. I read in one blog post that, “onions could absorb environmental pathogens and prevent illness” claiming that any evidence for this is the blackening of the onions outer shell after being exposed.
