Just a short note and an attempt at humour. In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis and before a vaccine comes available, I recommend everyone try to boost their immune system.
I saw that a Canadian from Montreal, Dr. Michael Cretien, was testing a vaccine made from plants which was successful against the SARS virus. Apples and onions in large dosages provided good results.
From an old wives tale and from a crazy old coot like myself, I recommend garlic pills and vitamin C. I also cut an onion in half and placed it beside my bed, discarded it in the morning and waited most of the day to eliminate the smell — but it just may have absorbed virus germs. The other advice is old as the hills: An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
I believe Islanders are following the instructions from better advice, but I hope if mine is not tried, at least it may give you a chuckle.
