Onions Reduce Women's Ovarian Cancer Risk by 73%:

Post by AlleyRose on Sat Apr 19, 2014 12:29 pm

Onions Reduce Women's Ovarian Cancer Risk by 73%: This fascinating case-control study from Switzerland and Italy showed that women eating just one serving of onions daily experienced 73% less ovarian cancer than those eating the least onions (one serving = 3 ounces or 80 grams, or half a cup chopped onion). Why are onions so powerful? Not only do they contain several sulphur-based compounds whichpotently inhibit cancer, they are also a uniquely concentrated source of 4-Oxo-flavonoids: only black currants and the herb sage deliver as much as onions do per ounce! The same study showed that onions also potently reduce the risk of these other cancers: breast cancer (-25%), prostate cancer (-71%), colon cancer (-56%), kidney cancer (-38%) and cancers of the mouth, throat and larynx. Bottom line: onions are one of the most scientifically supported anti-cancer superfoods and are extremely low in calories. They are easy to include in a healthy diet in salads, soups, omelettes, sandwiches, even smoothies. Keep in mind that latest research tells us raw garlic may be far superior to cooked garlic in fighting cancer - the same may well be true for onions since both are allium vegetables.
