We all worry about our health and knowing the benefits and risks of what we eat is very important. Onions are one of the most misunderstood vegetables, better known as an ingredient when peeling that can make you cry. But onions are also one of the healthiest vegetables in the world and there is evidence that they possess many amazing benefits to help us keep healthy.

Onions have been identified as a good way to reduced cholesterol and maintaining a low cholesterol level is important for lowering the risk of heart disease.
