Can an onion a day keep the doctor away?
Onions actually offer superior health benefits to some of our favorite superfoods, like pomegranates, green tea and red wine, he added.
Alvarez checked in with Chris Kilham, the Medicine Hunter, for a second opinion.
"Onions are especially high in beneficial antioxidants including the super-antioxidant, quercetin, which is useful for the heart, for the immune system (and) for many, many things in the body,” Kilham said. “I would make the claim that onions are among the healthiest of all foods you could possibly eat, and that if you eat an onion every day - and I’m not talking raw, you can cook it, prepare it any way you like - you will do far more for your health than eating lots of the super fruits that are available.”
So remember – an onion a day may keep the doctor away.
