Default Do You Like Cilantro?

We love it ... the more the better. But recently I've talked with some who despise it. One person told me it tastes like soap. I found a couple of interesting articles that talked about differences in our DNA that explain why some dislike it so much. I wouldn't be surprised if that explains other food likes/aversions as well.

I have been fascinated by these studies for years. DNA and resulting brain chemistry control everything from food tastes to political tendencies. It is both interesting and scary to think where this knowledge will lead.

I like cilantro and taste it frequently as I eat a LOT of Mexican food. Although I am mostly German by ancestry I detest sauerkraut. Go figure...

Thank for posting. I always thought it tastes like a nasty chemical and now I understand why most people like it and some do not.

I hate cilantro, but I will tolerate it to be polite. That's the way I was raised.

My DNA report tells me I have slightly lower odds of disliking cilantro, which is cool but I already knew that. Love the stuff. My sister can't stand it.
