Onions Are Good For You
They’re champs when it comes to polyphenols and flavonoids, which are both linked to lower oxidative stress and reduced cancer risk. An onion’s sulfur compounds can also help control diabetes symptoms and protect your heart from disease. Tip: The outermost layers tend to hold more healthy nutrients.
Note: I love sweet onions. Vidalia and Texas 1015 (It’s the official Texas state vegetable) are two great choices.
