People Who Taste Too Much – The Wall Street Journal: Super tasters are genetically wired to taste everything more intensely. There are drawbacks, such as a greater risk for colon cancer because they avoid vegetables but are leaner because they avoid fatty foods.

CBS This Morning: Losing Sense Of Taste As You Age

While some are super tasters, people over 50 may find themselves adding in more seasoning. This isn’t because of taste buds defecting, but losing your sense of smell.

There are over 10,000 taste buds on your tongue, roof and throat. The tongue only receives taste while the nose receives smell. Taste and smell make flavor. That’s why if you pinch your nose you won’t be able to get the flavor. Over time our sense of smell gets damaged and causes you to lose the sense of flavor.

Doctors are working on improving sense of smell to give patients a better sense of flavor. Losing this can cause more than just discomfort, it can also mean you are developing Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. These are things you should get checked by a doctor.
