That eye irritation you suffer when peeling/chopping/slicing an onion is caused by sulphur.

TRUTH !!
The strong smell of fresh onions comes from the sulphur-rich oil they contain.
Cutting or peeling an onion releases this oil, which readily evaporates and soon reaches the eyes. This sulfurous and acidic oil irritates nerve endings in the conjunctiva, the transparent tissue covering the eye and underside of the eyelids. An instinctive reaction is for the sensitized nerves to send signals which stimulate the tear (lachrymal) gland to produce extra tear fluid. Tears wash over the eye to flush out the chemical irritant
