WHY ONIONS MAKE YOU CRY.
So what's going on with onions that make you cry?
A researcher and author of the book Garlic and Other Alliums (onions are part of the plant genus allium) explained that "the onion is a perennial bulb that lives in the ground with lots of critters who are looking for a snack."
And so they have a chemical defense system, which, like a skunk fending off predators with a stench, releases the tear-jerker chemical to protect itself from being eaten.
Within each cell of an onion is a sealed vacuole filled with enzymes that rupture when cut into. The enzymes then mix with other chemicals in the onion cell and... "a whole cascade of chemical processes happen within an instant."
The result of all those chemical processes are syn-propanethial-S-oxide molecules, the irritating culprit making you (or your 3-year-old) cry.
When cut, the onion makes your cry as a means of defense. Bet you didn't know that.
