Why do we need to work SO hard to find things out? Is it a conspiracy that health information and science are not part of our common knowledge, for
most people, or are we all just lazy?
This from Scientific American states that what pandas eat depends on a certain gene. Pandas are naturally designed to be carnivorous but they're not
because they don't have a taste for meat. "In the panda's genetic map, the T1R1 gene appeared to not function, which 'might prevent the panda from
expressing a functional umami taste receptor,' wrote the authors. Thus, the big bear might not share other carnivores' affinity for meaty,
Imagine what we know about humans! From National Institutes of Health "Obesity and Type 2 diabetes are known to be caused by a combination of genetic
and environmental factors. The variations found in taste receptor genes may represent a portion of the underlying causes of these disorders"
Just think what the McDonalds' scientists know about our taste buds!!
Science is awesome and I love it but I'm not gonna sit around reading genetics journals just to find out what's good or bad for me! Our dang MSM is
worthless in so many ways!!
