goodbye/fun facts....national onion day...Onions are one of the world’s oldest cultivated vegetables...the humble onion improves the flavor of our savory meals, whether we use a sweet, white, red, or ever-popular yellow onion. they're low in calories, it is also high in vitamin C and antioxidants.  consuming onions also helps the body fight colorectal cancer and breast cancer.  The reason you become teary-eyed when cutting onions is because of the sulfuric acid they contain.  you can try freezing the onion for 30 minutes before cutting it...you can try wearing onion googles and make sure you use a sharp knife...the sharper your knife, the less likely you are to cry when you chop an onion. A dull knife will actually smash the onion rather than slice it cleanly, so the onion lets out more of the compound that irritates the eyes.
