Swine flu diet
CHISINAU: Moldova’s army is feeding its soldiers onions and garlic to help them ward off swine flu.
Defence Ministry chief doctor Colonel Sergiu Vasislita says about 25g of onions and 15g of garlic will be added to each soldier’s daily diet. That roughly corresponds to a small onion and a couple of garlic cloves.
Onion and garlic are traditional remedies in Moldova where they are believed to boost the immune system. – Sapa-AP
