It seems like every savory meal starts with sauteing garlic and onions. Our favorite pungently flavored veggies might just provide a lot more than flavor when it come to cancer prevention.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition recently published a report suggesting that folks consuming significant amounts of onions and garlic may be decreasing their risk of developing certain types of cancer. Cancers of the mouth, kidney, colon, ovaries and throat were much lower for adults in Europe and China who ate 7 or more servings a week of onions and garlic.
Before you start going crazy with your Garlic Genius, one of the researchers suggested that study participants who eat garlic and onion heavy diets might just have healthier diets loaded with all kinds of veggies.
So roast yourself some nice winter veggies and make sure to put some onions and garlic in the mix.
