Google "taste buds and age" an you will find pages on studies done on the subjects in this thread.

Characterizing a healthy diet as eating "twigs, weeds and cardboard" is designed to inflame.

You were joking yourself earlier about eating birds nests, tofu and cardboard when you replied to mgjim's post.
Obviously I know a person cannot exist without eating lots of healthy food.
I am very sorry; and I apologize if you took my comments personally.

Now, do you think you could answer the question about the Study you mentioned in your Opening Post?

I'd still like to know if the statistic you posted was the result of a study.
If so I'd like to see the link, just to understand the number of 75 year old seniors surveyed.
I'd also like to know the methodology used to figure out that the seniors only had 36% of their taste buds remaining.

Average number of taste buds remaining at 75: 36%

No study was mentioned and different studies may yield different results.

Barefoot asked yesterday:
Was there a study done or not.

I already answered the question and you quoted my answer in your previous post.

I said, "Evidently, a study was done on this subject and I now have the result." On page one of this thread I was asked for my source and I gave it: "The Check List" by Manny Alvarez M.D. That's all I have. Since it was reported in a book, by a doctor, I therefore assumed it must be the result of a study. What else would it be?

Then you have another quote by me that states, "No study was mentioned and different studies may yield different results."

That's the answer to your question and you already had it, what more do you want?
