The onion is a vegetable with a long tradition and history. It was first grown in Asia , and there is documentary evidence of it being used at times when magic was widely practised. The rulers of ancient Egypt considered the onion to be a nutritious food, there are several references to the interest aroused by the onion in the Old Testament and the Israelites considered this to be a stimulant. During the Middle Ages it was widely studied, and became so popular that the details of its healthy properties have come down to us today. This popular belief about the onion's ability to contribute to a longer and healthier life has existed for years and been orally passed down from generation to generation. Though this is a long-standing belief, how can it be accepted today? Obviously the simplest way is to examine the biochemical formation of the onion and then define its application in medicine.
