Physician, heal thyself

Tbf being diabetic is basically speeding down the slow road to death, so it's not surprising that olfactive abilities decline (along with just about everything else). I'm not surprised by the second study either. Thanks for sharing, it seems pretty obvious to be honest but good to have some supporting academic literature as well.I would assume - withoiut recourse to any empirical studies - that a net of interrelated cultural factors weigh in more heavily than individual food regimens. Global companies adjust the taste and smell of foods and cosmetic products to various markets. Guinness is more bitter in Pilsener drinking Germany than in Ireland, etc. pp.
Notably, there's far more research on the impact of loss of or underdeveloped sense of smell on negative dietary habits.
