TRIBUNBATAM.id - Onions are an important spice in every type of cuisine. In addition to improving taste, red and white onions can also reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Benefits of onions in preventing cancer is actually not a new thing. However, findings from recent studies add to the length of the evidence.

In a recent study by a team from Puerto Rico, the research team managed to find a link between consumption of onions and garlic on breast cancer

"We found that among Puerto Rican women, they consumed onions and garlic, linked to a reduction in the risk of breast cancer by up to 67 percent," said lead researcher on epidemiology, Gauri Desai. 

Puerto Rico is considered as the right country for this research because women in that country consume onions in quite large amounts compared to women in Europe and America.

"Onions and garlic are also often consumed in the form of stew, and also in foods made from rice and beans," Desai said.

He added, the number of breast cancer sufferers in the country was relatively low compared to America. 

Onions have flavonoids and organosulfur. The contents are known to be carcinogenic in humans and also in animal experiments. (*)
