Everyone wants to stay healthy and avoid illness. The best way to combat germs is to build a healthy immune system. The modest levels of Vitamin B6 in watermelon bolster your body's immune system and help it produce more antibodies. Vitamin B6 contributes to normal nerve function and enhances the formation of red blood cells. If you eat a lot of meat, you should increase your consumption of B6, because your body needs it to break down protein.

There has been extensive research into how onions affect blood sugar. This is good news for the 29 million people in the United States who have diabetes. The tests showed that people, who were diagnosed with type 1, and those with type 2 diabetes, had a lower blood sugar level (glucose reading) after eating onions, and it remained low for up to four hours after eating. This means onion could be very helpful in the management of diabetes. This is because of the sulfur compounds in onions that work to increase insulin production and, therefore, lower glucose levels.
