Onions may have a strong odor, but that may be because they are from the anti-allergy, antioxidant, anti-cancer, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral family. Just make sure to wear your goggles when you cut them into a fresh one. As the onion grows in the ground, the sulfur in the soil creates amino acid sulfoxides. So when you cut into the gas (or if a critter bites into it), the sulfur gas is released, hits your eyes, and you feel the burn.

The noble and humble onion, the white, red, green, and pink varieties, are whole-body beneficial vegetables. Onions help regulate the development of red blood cells across the body, influencing better immune reactions and brain functions, and cognitive abilities. Further onions help the creation of niacin and serotonin, which play a crucial role in sleep, appetite, and mood control. Only 100 mg or a small handful of chopped onions is needed to feel the benefits of this natural root vegetable.
