The tongue is a muscular organ that gives us the ability to taste different types of flavors.
A new study suggests that obese children eat more food because their taste buds aren't sharp enough, and to get the same taste hit, they end up eating more. Scientists from the Charité University Hospital in Berlin compared obese children to those of normal weight and found that the taste buds of obese children were less sensitive, which blunted their ability to distinguish all five tastes of bitter, sweet, salty, sour and umami - savoury. Hence, it is to compensate for the lack of taste sensation that they end up gorging on more food, Mail Online reported.
