Garlic And Onions For Health

They may not do much for your breath but onions and garlic could actually help lower the risk for several types of cancer.

European researchers analyzed eight studies, and concluded that older adults who consumed diets rich in onions and garlic had the lowest risk of several cancers such as colon, throat and ovarian cancer.

Most of the data on that finding comes from China, so it is unclear whether the results would hold with more western diets.

Researchers say compounds in both garlic and onions could slow tumor growth.
