Do You Hate Brussels Sprouts?

Do some foods like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, or cilantro taste weird to you? Well, you’re not alone! Turns out, it has to do with your genes. In the case of Brussels sprouts, there are compounds called glucosinolates, and some people perceive them as bitter–sometimes unbearably so–depending on which version of the TAS2R38 gene they got, which is a taste receptor! Crazy right?!
