Whether in the kitchen or the hospital, you can find a use for the onion, or Allium cepa. But it is one of the most widely used ingredients in both the culinary and herbal medicinal industries. The Allium genus includes such diverse plants as garlic, scallions, fennel, and green onions. Onions are related to chives.

However, despite onions' usefulness in treating a wide range of medical issues, research over the years has linked their use to an increased risk of developing a number of negative health impacts.


This article will provide a quick overview of three physiological effects of eating onions.


1. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a widespread medical condition that affects the quality of life for millions of people throughout the world, according to WebMD. Bloating, stomach pain, gas, cramps, and aches in the muscles, and irregular bowel movements (from digestive issues to diarrhea) are all associated with the disorder. However, studies have revealed that onions contain chemicals that have been proved to aggravate this condition.


Second, an overreaction of the immune system to the proteins in certain foods is what triggers food allergies. Studies have shown that certain foods, including onions, contain complex combinations of components like monoterpene sulfides and receptor-associated proteins. Long-term contact can trigger asthma attacks, runny noses, stuffy noses, itchy eyes, and a red, irritating rash on the skin.


Consumption of onions causes the release of a gas called LF, which irritates the eyes and causes them to produce tears as a natural response.
