If You Eat Onion Every Day, This Can Happen to Your Body

1. Lower Cancer Risk

Onions contain certain organosulfur compounds that give them their distinctive smell, but also work to detoxify the carcinogens that we consume every day. That translates to a lower lifetime risk of cancer. Research suggests that the more onions you eat, the greater the protection.

But before you start an all-onion diet, know that combining onions with turmeric has a synergistic effect, and that garlic offers similar protection. It’s still a great idea to eat onion every day, but you can add these other ingredients to extend the benefits, rather than eat all onions, all the time.
