Hi folks,

Onions prevent cancer !! I've previously posted about Mushrooms preventing cancer. Here's some references.

Dr. Fuhrman recommends we eat a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds. Add whole grains to fill in calories, as needed. Meat and animal products may be added, up to 10% of calories, if desired, and if you are meeting your health goals.

Best regards, EngineerGuy

Onions also have quercitin, a heart and vessel beneficial substance.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quercetin

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18187018
"An investigated flavonoid, quercetin, is reviewed in this article. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid found in red wine, grapefruit, onions, apples, black tea, and, in lesser amounts, in leafy green vegetables and beans. Quercetin has an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity and prevents cancer."

Anti-inflammatory means it helps us heal from everything, as does exercise by skeletal muscle production of interleukins.

Hmm. Maybe I or someone else among the good guys here will open a private exchange, and invite those to give their home e-mails addresses encourage greater real camaraderie.
