A leading health expert has ridiculed suggestions a raw onion paleo diet is unsafe for babies or anyone else.
According to Professor of Dietetics, Sarah Nirren, Tony Abbott is in the right for once.
“Onions are a great source of chromium,” says the Professor.
“And don’t even get me started on all those phytochemicals.”
“Raw onions are the bomb!”
But even better than the nutritional benefits, Professor Nirren says that onions are one of the healthiest ways for people to stimulate their emotions.
“Other than a live animal, I can’t think of another food that makes you cry so much when you cut it up.”
“The emotional release you get from an onion is a faster and more potent hit than watching a tearjerker like Beaches.”
Babies love raw onion paleo diet
Even though babies already cry a lot, Professor Nirren says there’s no reason why they should miss out on the benefits of a raw onion paleo diet.
“It’s hard to eat a raw onion without teeth, I’ll admit.”
“But if anyone out there wants their baby to be like Tony Abbott and munch on an onion, I say go for it!”
