6. Claims Of Health Benefits
It has been claimed that onions ‘cure’ coughs, colds, flu, sinus ailments, bruises, hemorrhoids, and chilblains plus assorted other diseases.
As Hygienists, we know that this could not be true. Only the body can heal. The use of onions may suppress disease symptoms but this is certainly an undesirable effect as this results in suppressing our body’s attempts to heal.
Poisons do not heal—poisons only poison. There are no health benefits in eating onions.
