The Shape of Foods Help our Organs?? – ONIONS

27 Jun

This is part of a series on how our food can help certain organs that resemble their same shape. I already shared with you how the following foods benefit these organs:

Carrots – Eyes

Tomatoes – Heart

Grapes – Heart

Walnuts – Brain

Celery, Rhubarn, Bok Choy – Bones

Beans – Kidneys

Sweet Potatoes – Pancreas

Eggplant, Pear and Avocados – women organs and issues

Figs – Male sperm production

Olives – Ovaries

What would life be like without onions? I use onions in almost any dish in my cooking. It’s the base for my sofrito… but onions are a staple of any world cuisine. World onion production is steadily increasing so that onion is now the second most important horticultural crop after tomatoes. I thought it was potatoes on top… but apparently it’s onions and tomatoes.

According to our little theory here, onions are also beneficial for our cell health in general. My conclusion after reading lots of internet research, it’s that onions are great strengthening cells and making them less vulnerable to cancer growth.

  • Onion extracts, rich in a variety of sulfides, provide some protection against tumor growth. In central Georgia where Vidalia onions are grown, mortality rates from stomach cancer are about one-half the average level for the United States. These sulfides can reduce the risk of tumors developing in the colon and also may lower blood lipids and blood pressure. In India, communities that never consumed onions or garlic had blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels substantially higher than the communities that ate liberal amounts of garlic and onions.
  •  Onions are also effective against many bacteria… Early American settlers used wild onions to treat colds, coughs, and asthma, and to repel insects. In Chinese medicine, onions have been used to treat angina, coughs, bacterial infections, and breathing problems. Even the World health Organization recognized onions for providing relief in the treatment of coughs and colds, asthma and bronchitis.

Here are some delicious ways to benefit your cell’s health with onions:

Onions and Peppers

Roasted Tomatoes and Onions

Yuca with Cuban Mojo

Stewed Chayote

French Onion Soup

French Onion Dip

French Quesadilla

Cashew and Veggies Stri-Fry

Leek Rings

Leek and Potato Soup

Pickled Red Onions
