Onion is a term used for many plant roots but used without
qualifiers it refers to the "garden onion".
Onions are widely used in salads and for cooking. They have
also some medical properties.
The onion has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
It is a mild antibiotic and antiviral agent.
Onions have the potential to alleviate or prevent sore throat.
I use tomato onion salad to cure colds and sore throat:
Cut one tomato and half a onion into pieces. Add some
salt and mix with oil.
