Some people 'genetically wired' to avoid veg

Recommended Posts

Hate eating certain vegetables? It could be down to your genes, say US scientists who have done some new research.

Inheriting two copies of the unpleasant taste gene provides a "ruin-your-day level of bitterness" to foods like broccoli and sprouts, they say.

It could explain why some people find it difficult to include enough vegetables in their diet, they suggest.

The gene may also make beer, coffee and dark chocolate taste unpleasant.

Sometimes our bodies know more about us than we ,or the dr., does.    Not always...for instance, my wife probably couldn't live on cookies exclusively.
