And another thing about my genetically superior taste buds: A new study takes this argument one step further, providing evidence that broccoli (and its leafy cousins) are actually toxic to more than a billion people worldwide because of a component inside the vegetable that inhibits thyroid function. Thanks to evolution, individuals to whom broccoli is toxic also find the vegetable and its cousins unpalatable.
More importantly, to those self-righteous, so-called sophisticated palates who are constantly finding the need to judge me based upon the foods I choose to eat or avoid, I now have further evidence that I have no control over what I find edible.
In fact, my choices might be keeping my thyroid working efficiently.
It’s evolution. So leave me the hell alone.
