According to the BBC, researchers found that women who drank two or more glasses a day were at double the risk of those who did not consume it at all, or only in small amounts.
On finding a potential compound for the treatment of lung cancer, researchers examined the effects of onionin A (ONA) derived from the onion in the inhibition of tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) in the M2 phenotype.
* Onionin A directly suppressed lung cancer cell proliferation.
* Onionin A enhanced the effects of anti-cancer drugs was also observed.
