Onions and garlic are attributed to cold-fighting properties, which supposedly help to avoid acute respiratory viral infections. However, doctors have a different opinion on this.
Doctors believe that onions and garlic will not save from SARS and will not help cure a cold. Just because their effectiveness when taken orally has not been proven. The fact is that their selective antimicrobial activity is confirmed only in vitro – in vitro. And another point – onions and garlic can burn and irritate an already damaged mucous membrane.
In the same way, there is no evidence that oranges and other citrus fruits, which are eaten for vitamin C, have at least a slight effect on SARS. On the contrary, with viral diseases, consuming a lot of acid is dangerous. Doctors warned: excess acid slows the healing of mucous membranes affected by the virus.
Doctors also expressed their opinion about raspberries – its ability to lower the temperature is greatly exaggerated. The fact is that salicylates, which thin the blood, can reduce fever, but for this you will have to eat at least 4 kilograms of berries, which is unacceptable.
