Why Does My Food Taste Different?
Dr. Scott Stringer (University of Mississippi Medical Center) says "that is it the changes in the nose that really matter".Our noses and aging are the culprits for loss of taste. There is a decrease in the number of sensor cells that detect aromas. For women, taste buds can start diminishing between 40 and 50. For men, taste buds can start diminishing between 50 and 60. I can not imagine not being able to taste something that I enjoy. I also can not imagine not being able to smell things. Loosing your taste and smell can cause help problems which include, seeking out foods higher in salt and sugar and being unable to detect the smell of natural gas.
