ONION ANSWER BY razy

when the onion skin is broken, it releases a substance called propanethial sulfoxide, which is similar to sulfuric acid.So the nerve endings in your eyes detects the propanethial sulfoxide and your brain tells your eyes to produce tears to wash it away.now scientist have created an onion without the cell with the  propanethial sulfoxide.It’s still in the development stage.one innovative way is to put a small fan beside the onion so that the propanethial sulfoxide will not reach our eyes. another way is to freeze the onion so as to deactivate the cell with the propanethial sulfoxide
