An Onion a Day...
According to a new study by Cornell University food scientists, led by Rui Hai Liu, M.D., Ph.D.,
Associate Professor of food science, NY grown yellow onions like NEW YORK BOLD are the most
effective, of 10 onion varieties studied, for helping to slow the proliferation of colon cancer
cells and second best for fighting liver cancer. This is because NY Bold onions have very high
phenolic and flavonoid content which is directly related to their antioxidant and anti-proliferation
Scientific studies of the healthy benefits of onions like New York Bold in your diet have shown they also:
Reduce the spread of ovarian, brain, and breast cancer cells
Promote healing of stomach ulcers
