Recipes and remembrances: The Vinegar Story, Part II


The Vinegar Story, Part II

By Patrecia Gray - Special to the Register



When I studied the side effects and toxicity of medicines in pharmacology in nursing school, I said to myself, “If people only knew what these medications have the potential of doing.” In a 2005 report by Jessica Fraser, on “Natural News.com,” she wrote, the amount of people who die each year from prescription drugs is 750,000. She said that equals six jumbo jets crashing every day for a year. In addition, she recorded, prescription drugs are 16,400 percent more deadly than terrorists. That little bit of information should scare the pants off us. If it doesn’t, have we been brainwashed?

We did our own experiments, in the nursing lab, to find the solutions that kill germs most effectively. Alcohol proved most effective of my experiments…we had no vinegar.

Later, I did a personal experiment with vinegar. We were packed and ready for vacation. I went back into the house to get a wet washcloth. I wet the washcloth with straight vinegar and stuck it inside a plastic bag…an incubator for germ growth. Furthermore, it laid between the front seats in direct sunlight of hot summer with the car windows up…no air conditioning…all conducive for growing verminous predators. I found the baggy about a month after we got back from vacation. The washcloth had not a spec of mold or any signs of growths. Extreme acid or alkaline solutions can be fatal to germs, and vinegar is acidic.

When my husband gets leg cramps, he pours about an ounce of vinegar in about a half cup of water and drinks it. He declares vinegar gives him relief.

My second daughter told me, after they were first married, her and our son-in-law’s first argument was over vinegar. They had little money and she wanted to buy vinegar; her husband, not use to using vinegar as she was, said, “It’s not necessary.” That was several years ago.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, and who lived before Christ was born, advocated using vinegar according to “Medscape News Today.”

There are many ways vinegar can help people.

Vinegar is worthy of your research and making use of what you find. Of course, the slogan everyone is programmed to say, “Check with your doctor before using.” However, vinegar is a food and you are responsible for your own health.
