When it comes to genetics, there’s far more than our eye and hair color that we inherit from our parents. Traits such as sneezing in the sun, craving sugary food, and music taste are just a few of the quirky things people exhibit because of their parents. Read on to see what other personality traits you didn’t know are inherited.
Why Certain People Get A Sweet Tooth
Everyone has different tastes in food, but there are some people who can’t get enough of the sugary treats. This could be due to a taste-receptor gene called TAS2R38.
Those who have this gene will experience more of a bitter taste when eating vegetables and will crave things that are sweeter. Those who don’t have the gene will likely eat 200 more servings of vegetables per year.
