Scientists once told us that you can’t change your family, the genes they pass on, or the effect of these genes. Now an international team of scientists is attacking that belief. They discovered that the gene that is the strongest marker for heart disease can actually be modified by generous amounts of fruit and raw vegetables. Researcher Jamie Engert says, "We know that some genetic variants increase the risk of heart disease, but it was a surprise to find that a healthy diet could significantly weaken its effect.”

His team’s research suggests that that people with the high risk genotype who eat a prudent diet, composed mainly of raw vegetables, fruits and berries, have a similar risk of heart attack to those with the low risk genes." Researcher Sponia Anand says, "Our results support the public health recommendation to consume more than five servings of fruits or vegetables as a way to promote good health."

Don’t like vegetables? Some scientists have "mapped" the tongue–saying that we taste sweets on one part of it, bitterness on another–but it turns out this isn’t true: we used the whole tongue to taste EVERYTHING, and those bumps on your tongue aren’t taste buds: Those bumps on your tongue aren’t actually your taste buds: each one is receptacle for 50 to 100 buds. People who become chefs and restaurant critics may be among the 15 to 25% of the people who have more taste buds than the rest of us.
