    What is the effect if we use onion in our diet

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Onions in general promote heart health, reduce inflammation and decrease the risk of cancer. Onions are low in calories (45 per serving), very low in sodium, and contain no fat or cholesterol. Furthermore, onions contain fiber and folic acid, a B vitamin that helps the body make healthy new cells. The fiber in onions promotes good digestion and helps keep you regular.
      The health risks include:
      • It may interfere with blood thinning drugs because of the content of high Vitamin K
      • Too much intake causes nausea, vomiting and gastric discomfort.
