Why do Onions Make us Cry?
We know that it’s not sadness about the onion’s demise that causes our eyes to start watering as soon as we start to chop, but what actually IS causing those tears? According to scientists and people who dedicate their lives to answering these kinds of questions, onions release an enzyme that converts into syn-propanethial-S-oxide which irritates the eyes and causes them to reflexively tear up as a defense against potential damage. Hence the annoying amounts of weeping that accompanies onion chopping…there, so now you know!
