Benefits of Onions
Increases insulin in the body
Onions increases insulin in the body and also treats diabetes by controlling the sugar levels in the blood. Onion has repeatedly been shown to lower our risk of several cancers, even when we consume it in only moderate amounts. Moderate generally means 1 2 times per week, even though in some studies it has been used to mean up to 5 6 times per week. Colorectal cancer, laryngeal cancer, and ovarian cancer are the cancer types for which risk is reduced along with moderate amounts of dietary onion. For other cancer types, however, moderate intake of onion has not been enough to show significant risk reduction. For these cancer types including esophageal cancer and cancers of the mouth daily intake of onion is required before research results show significant risk reduction.
