Fig trees haunted by evil spirits? They can certainly turn bowels to liquid so perhaps seeing people having to run after eating was misunderstood

There have been studies showing that onions can 'draw out' infections. Immortality, I believe, is quite another thing.

I believe that certain plants have natural healing properties along with some spices, herbs, etc. I don't however believe that eating onions will find your true love or that mice are afraid of cucumbers. Interesting story though.

I would think the mice might be happy to have cucumbers around to eat.
