Cilantro Dissidents Identified

"[W]hen a study of identical twins found an aversion to cilantro stems from a genetic glitch, the herb's bashers finally had a good reason why they found the leaves of the Coriander plant so offensive. But who are these people in the anti-cilantro community? No one had a clue — until now."

I used to loathe cilantro until my teens, when I was living with an aunt that put it in everything. In excessive amounts. Gazpacho was largely cilantro based, with tomatoes an after thought. I had to adapt to survive. And now, I carry the cycle of abuse onward with others, using papalo.

It must be weird at the big genetics conference or whatever when Sally is all "Oh, I'm trying to find possible markers for a higher risk of cancer" and Donald, while he munches a celery stick tells Dale that he is working on genetic therapy for Alzheimer's, and Robbie is all "I wanna find out why 1 out of 20 assholes don't like my salsa."

This will make executing them a lot easier.

@deepomega As long as I don't have to eat the salsa, I'll die happily.

GLITCH?!?! It's a feature, not a bug!

I was sure this study would be the most newsworthy thing I'd read all day, until I watched the video. Ina Garten was a nuclear energy policy analyst at the White House before becoming the barefoot contessa?!?

Cilantro rules.

So what I'm hearing is that someday there will be a prenatal test for people with annoying food issues and they can be aborted?

Is there a gene defect for people who like Cilantro way,way too much? Cilantro is like catnip to me and I find myself having to justify my love way too often.

@SuperMargie

Me too!
I had never even tasted it until I was an adult, and I LOVE it. Fresh, on anything.
