One of my close family members had some heart valve problems recently. He went through many heart-related tests, such as, electrocardiogram (EKG) [1], Echocardiogram test [2], transesophageal echo test (TEE) [2], and cardiac catheterization (CATH) [2], etc. The last one, CATH, is to check the coronary arteries blockage. Among all the bad news, one good result is that his blood vessels are very clean, without any build-up of fatty deposits, and even the doctor was a little bit surprised; since so many people are suffering from clogged arteries at this stage of life. For the next few days, I was ponding the test result and trying to figure out what we eat regularly that may contribute to the clean arteries. I searched internet for heart healthy food [3]; many were listed, such as, leafy green vegetables, whole grains, berries, avocados, fish, nuts, beans, chocolate, tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and green teas, etc. Of course, we eat many of them on the list. However, I think one most important item is missing, and that is onion! Let me tell you why I think onion is one of the most important ingredients in cleaning our blood vessels. It comes from some life experience and observation: my dad had a heart attack a few years ago and passed away. I was so sad and cannot accept it at that time. He should have lived a much longer life, since his mother, my paternal grandma, lived up to ninety-six. My dad loved to eat fish and most of the listed healthy food above, but it was fried fish, and often the fish was cooked using lots of cooking oil. And growing up, I love to eat fish too and learned how to cook.
