    I eat raw onions on pretty much a daily basis. Normally I will mix rice tuna onion and relish for lunch


    Roomate just walked in to tel me that his fathers dietitian claimed that he should cut out onions completely, but he couldnt remember why.


    I am assuming this is a crock of bullshit and I will continue eating my onions unless someone here knows differently.

    No reason that I know of. Certainly nothing for a healthy person to worry about. Tell your roomie to citation or GTFO :o

    the point is everything gives you cancer and we're not made to last forever so why sit around worrying about shit?

    use common sense and enjoy life.

    lots of things give you cancer yes, not everything. preventing it is a pretty legitimate concern.

    I will say that if I had a bunch of relatives die of a certain type of cancer I'd be concerned.

    the only negitive I can think of for onions is the acidity, but what the fuck ever.

    What I was thinking as well.

    Onions are highly acidic and your body has a difficult time digesting the onions. This is why so many middle-aged people have trouble with onions (especially raw onions). They tend to cause acid reflux, heart burn, and can aggravate ulcers.

    It could be possible your roommate's father suffers from one of the above conditions and thus is being told to refrain from eating them.
