This week: onions vs. the flu, new low-calorie sweeteners, better butter, the evils of wheat and much much more

Do Onions Fight the Flu?Another week, another myth (or three)!  If someone has sent you an email about putting cut onions around the house to absorb germs,  please read this before you forward!  And here’s a closer look at some of the rumors circulating about wheat these days.   Also, here’s a fresh take on an evergreen topic:  best way to lose weight and keep it off.

Over in the Healthier Vices department, there’s a new and supposedly more natural low-calorie sweetener in town.  And while I don’t necessarily consider butter to be a vice, here’s a way to make it a bit better for you.

And in the Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Gas category, please see this week’s listener Q&A: Is it OK to take Beano with Metamucil?
