Cancer Cure Hiding in the Produce Aisle?!?
Dear Turapür Today Reader,
Being diagnosed with cancer is no doubt one of the scariest things in life.
And coming in at a close second are the sickening drugs and painful surgeries the mainstream offers to treat it.
But you deserve a better way.
And it looks like it could be hiding in the produce aisle of your local grocery store.
You see, Canadian researchers have just found that the humble red onion could be the next big cancer breakthrough.
Scientists have touted the cancer-fighting powers of onions in the past because of their high content of quercetin — a powerful flavonoid known to stop tumor growth.
More recently, researchers in Ontario wanted to pinpoint which type of onion has the most cancer-destroying powers.
In the lab experiment, scientists exposed cancer cells to the quercetin extracts of five different onion varieties.
At the end of the trial, it was the red onion that came out on top.
Researchers gave two reasons for this:
- Red onions have the highest level of quercetin of all the onions tested.
- Their color. Red onions get their hues from anthocyanins, strong antioxidants that boost the cancer-fighting properties of quercetin.
Experts report that when these two compounds are combined, as they are in red onions, they can kill cancer cells by inducing cell death and interfering with cell communication, which stops growth.
The next step for onions as a cancer cure is clinical trials. These aren’t yet scheduled but may happen sooner than later. I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, you should enjoy red onions as often as you can.
And don’t forget — the darker the onion the better. Onions with the deepest shades of red have the most anthocyanins and could pack the most punch when it comes to fighting cancer.
