BENEFITS OF ONIONS FOR HEALTH
Eleanor Bennigan from Pullman, WA, asks:
My friends who are favoring natural health solutions, told me to keep an eye specifically on onions when it comes to ovarian cancer I am diagnosed with. Never heard about the connection between ovarian cancer and onions. Did you, Doc?
Since centuries, folks around the world are planting and harvesting vegetables and herbs of the botanical allium family, including garlic, scallions, chives, leeks – and onions. With a total harvest of (white, yellow, and red) onions of more than 100 billion (!) pounds annually, worldwide.
Not only because of onion’s culinary flavors but – yes – also for medicinal purposes based on their nutritional benefits in terms of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. For better mood, sleep, hair, skin, and appetite, and less depression. Just to name briefly some of onion’s benefits for our overall health.
Without loading our bodies with extra fat, sodium, calories – and side effects - at the same time. And with the additional benefit to be added to our daily menu in manifold ways such as grilled, roasted, sautéed, or just put on a sandwich fresh. Not enough:
BREAKTHROUGH IN THE WAR ON CANCER?
ccording to a comprehensive study at Kumamoto University in Japan, a specific compound in onions (called Onionin A – briefly ONA) can slow down epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) which, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) is the most common type of ovarian cancer with a 5-year survival rate for less than 40% of patients so far.
In the respective Japanese study, this specific compound in onions hampered not only tumor development by reducing cancer cell proliferation and cancer supporting free radicals due to its organosulfur content, but also extended lifespan.
