Benefits of onions

Onions are pretty popular in casseroles, soups and salads and most people seem to like them. Just as well, they are good for you. I knew they were good for the system but I confess I wasn’t sure why other than a vague notion they were good for warding off colds. They have iron, vitamins and that ever popular folic acid. It is important people eat their vegetables and fruit, but it is also important to know what is in them and how it helps your health. The site 3fatchicks may not have a flattering name but it has a wealth of really useful nutritional information.
