The One with the Green Snot Sorbet

How come something that’s tasty to you, makes your mate want to spew?

The human body, and its digestive system, is truly remarkable. We tend to focus on what food does to run our bodies – providing nutrients and energy – but this clip helps explore how our nerve-endings and digestive system perceive flavours, particularly the differences when flavours are hot or cold, with the help of taste expert, Dr. Eugeni Roura. Students also get to watch vegetable ice-creams and sorbets getting the tick of approval from some appreciative guests, prompting the question: are we more likely to like foods when we take away any preconceived ideas about them?

Factastical #10

Former Beatle Paul McCartney said he’d only appear on the Simpsons if Lisa gave up meat for the entire series. It’s over 20 years later and she’s still committed to vegetarianism… and she’s still eight years old.
