Sugar and Salt

Two stories on NPR caught my attention this morning.  Both were interesting but together even more fun to listen to:

  • Salt – its commonly known that some people have far more taste buds than others.  What is interesting that these “super tasters” crave salt even though they are more senstive to it than anyone else.

  • Sugar – Drinks containing as much sugar and calories as a big mac
