Doctors Discuss TikTok Onion Water Remedy

Doctors Discuss TikTok Onion Water Remedy

Onion water is taking over TikTok. The drink has become increasingly popular on the video-sharing platform, with many users claiming it’s a natural cold and flu remedy that can help the body heal faster.

TikTok user @earthenchild detailed how to make the drink in a now-viral video about onion water’s alleged healing properties and now doctors are weighing in. Dr. Kitty O’Hare, senior medical director for pediatrics at Duke Primary Care, said, “It has been around for a very long time, but there isn’t clear research showing that it has a benefit for your average person for coughs, colds and flus.”

Dr. Jason Nagata, assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, agrees and said, “I’m not aware of any scientifically proven studies that show any kind of benefit for colds or respiratory symptoms. I just don’t think that people should expect that they’ll be able to really improve colds or flus with just onions.”

Onion water is made by cutting up raw onions into small pieces then placing the chopped onions into a jar or bowl and adding filtered water. The fresh onion and water mixture should then sit covered in the refrigerator overnight or for about 12 hours, and then it’s ready to drink.

Britney Spears Deactivates Instagram Amid Questions About If She Runs Her Own Account

After fans questioned whether or not Britney Spears was running her own Instagram account, it seems the account has gone dark.  As of Tuesday (December 6), Britney’s account shows up, but it offers the message “user not found,” and there are no posts.  The questions began mounting after Britney posted a note to her estranged sister, Jamie Lynne Spears, that was supportive; however, the week before, she had made a post that put Jamie on blast.  Britney’s husband, Sam Asghari, took to social media to confirm Britney is behind her social media posts. Britney has left Instagram before, as recently as last month and in October.

Ben Affleck Opens Up About His Feelings Over Netflix’s Output

Ben Affleck Opens Up About His Feelings Over Netflix’s Output

Ben Affleck recently shared how he feels about Netflix’s output and how he views its movie-making process as an ‘assembly line.’ Ben said, “If you ask [Netflix co-CEO and chairman] Reed Hastings…he’d say, ‘Hey, we went for quantity to establish a footprint.'” He continued, “I’m sure there’s wisdom in that, and I’m sure they had a great strategy, but I would have said, ‘How are we going to make 50 great movies? How is that possible?’ There’s no committee big enough. There aren’t enough — you just can’t do it.”

He added, “Making movies is a thing that requires attention and dedication and works, and it resists the sort of assembly line process that Netflix has made its standard. [Netflix’s head of original films] Scott Stuber is a really talented, smart guy who I really like…but it’s an impossible job.” Affleck continued, “There’s bigger audience for action movies than there is for small dramas. I get that. Certain genres play more broadly, and you can’t not be mindful of that. But let’s do a good one, let’s surprise the audience, let’s make them care about it.”
