Swine flu diet

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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
