There's a reason you put Onion and Garlic into soup when you're sick.

Because it helps kill germs.

A 1,000-year-old treatment for eye infections could hold the key to killing antibiotic-resistant superbugs, experts have said. 
Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach. 
They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA.

Although it looks like I need to add some wine to my diet when I get sick.  Oh, the horror.
