Onion makes you cry due to its sulfuric acid in its natural oil, to reduce the burning of eyes you can wet the knife you use in water or vinegar; cut the onion in halves and leave them in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Onions sleep to preserve energy and do not sprout until the climatic conditions are adequate, this is known as dormancy.
The onion is good for your health because it dissolves the uric acid of the body, stimulates the appetite, regulates the functions of the stomach, and is a diuretic and anticoagulant.
