A study in 2006, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, touts the benefits of eating onion. Findings indicate the more onion and other allium vegetables, such as garlic, we eat, the better. In fact, the odds of developing certain cancers is lower among those individuals partaking of this readily available vegetable.
