Onions can forestall brain diseases

Eating onions can help to protect the brain from diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, according to Japanese research.

The researchers, from the University of Hokkaido Tokai, found that people suffering from memory loss reported improved recall abilities after eating lightly cooked onion. The researchers believe this can be attributed to a sulphur-containing compound found in onions that can alleviate memory impairment. They believe the sulphur atoms found in the onions have the ability to bond to harmful cellular toxins known to pose a threat of cognitive impairment.
