Preventing Shoddy Science


Currently I am working on an article titled “Supertaster Or Discerning Palate?” in which I run an experiment to see if I am what is known as a supertaster. A supertaster is someone who has a higher than average concentration of taste buds. About 25% of people have this.

Right now I am holding off because I didn’t have the right equipment to run the experiment properly. Anyone in my Facebook timeline knows how much I hate shoddy science. I will also be having someone else assisting me with a flashlight and magnifying glass instead of trying to do it myself.

I’ll also be including some information on why this is more than just a novelty and how it can affect you or your children who might be supertasters, themselves.

So stay tuned.
