FC: Why do onions make you cry?
1: Onions like other plants have cells. These cells are divided into two sections and they are separated by a membrane. One side of the membrane contains a chemical, an enzyme,which helps chemical processes occur in your body.
2: While cooking the onion, it inactivates the enzyme, so while the smell of the cooked onion may be strong.
3: AN ONION CONTAINS COMPOUND SULFER. WHEN YOU CUT THE ONION THIS SULFER GOES IN THE EYES AND MIXES WITH WATER IN EYES.
4: The best way to keep your eyes from watering is to cut the onion under a cold tap of water,the sulfur compounds dissolve in water and are rinsed down the sink before it can get in your eyes | .
