Some people have a higher sensitivity to certain types of 'bitter' or textual flavors that not everybody has - it was great news for people who've long tried to suffer with what they couldn't tolerate. The basis was not only 'bitter' but also 'sweet' and other things; the research studied people with chronic sweet tooth (teeth?), aversions to broccoli or other specific foods.

This is the reason why I can't stand mushrooms. Maybe it was because my mom tried to make me eat canned mushrooms when I was young, but there's nothing redeeming about them. Can't stand the way the smell, taste, or feel while chewing or going down. I've tried to find really good mushroom recipes in the hopes that, like broccoli, I'll stumble across one that just makes the food likable to me. No such luck so far.

I was a very picky eater when I was little, too.
