Today, American growers are harvesting millions of onions, and on June 27 National Onion Day will be celebrated.
The National Onion Association calls the onion Nature’s Ninja. It protects the body like a ninja and has many skills, such as adding a variety of flavors to enhance meals. Recent studies have shown eating onions helps the body ward off colorectal cancer and breast cancer, as well as stave off heart disease and diabetes.
National Onion Day celebrates the day that the National Onion Association was incorporated in 1913. The organization was formed to protect the interest of America’s onion growers, and to this day, onions remain their business. Today, the organization represents more than 500 onion growers, shippers, packers and suppliers throughout the United States.
