Melbourne, Apr 17 (ANI): A new study shows that onions can be instrumental in regulating weight, besides preventing diabetes and reducing blood pressure.
Biomedical scientists at the University of Southern Queensland have revealed that onions can combat obesity, diabetes and increased blood pressure, reports Courier Mail.
