Fresh seaweed, washed up on the beach, without a
source of fresh water to clean off the salt, would
taste too bitter, no? How would it taste to someone
unaccustomed to salt?
Even if fresh seaweed tastes disgusting, I think we
can find ourselves in a dangerous position when we
rely solely on our sense of taste to guide us in our
eating. How do we know that our sense of taste is
actually trained to our biological diet? It may take
some time of eating 811rv for our sense of taste to
adapt to a lack of salt and other condiments. And even
then, much of the time we can't taste things in our
food that are harmful. I often can't tell the
difference between organic and conventional produce by
the taste of the food alone, although organic is far
better for my health and for the environment.
In the meantime, we can use the knowledge we have at
our disposal to make the best decisions about what to
eat. We know more today than ever before about
nutrition, physiology and toxicology, letting us
rationalise a diet of fruits and veg to logically
exclude foods that don't meet our needs. I think that
to rely on taste alone in today's world is too
dangerous a game.
