And I, shame-faced, had fiddled with one end of my hair, eyes filling with tears. She’d handed over the money and pushed me forward to apologise. “Go on Lucy, apologise for what you&rs...

Are Taste Preferences Genetic?
Discussion Taste or gustation is the sensation of taste and is a primary human sense. There are 5 basic tastes currently accepted including sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami or savory.

Taste buds in the oral cavity are the primary chemoreceptors of whether or not to allow a substance into our bodies. Taste receptors are also found in the gastrointestinal tract and are involved in gut sensing. Flavor and taste are not the same although in general everyday language people use them interchangeably. Flavor is “… t...
