TUESDAY, April 5, 2022 (HealthDay News) – A rose by another name is delicious, writes William Shakespeare.
She was found to be right.
The scents that people like and despise are not determined by cultural knowledge but are largely determined by the root of the fragrance, according to a new world study.
“We want to see if people around the world have different knowledge and different flavors, or if this is something that is taught in culture,” says historian Artin Arshamian. is a lecturer in clinical neuroscience at Karolinska School in Stockholm.
“Normally, he’s seen as a culture, but we can tell there’s very little culture with him,” he said in an institute news release.
Culture around the world organizes different scents in the same way, Arshamian said, but fragrance preferences are personal – but not cultural – pieces, he added.
So, if you like the smell of vanilla or peaches, you have a great company. Those things came out as a very pleasant smell to the lesson.
The worst? Isovaleric acid, which can be found in foods such as cheese, soy milk and apple juice, and smelly feet.
The researchers studied from the University of Pennsylvania and Arizona State University, as well as other colleges in Sweden, the United Kingdom, Ecuador, Australia and Mexico.
There are many people who work with the Indigenous people. To study, they selected nine communities representing different lifestyles, including hunters, farmers, and fishermen. Some have something to do with Western foods or household items.
“Because these groups live in so many different environments, such as the rainforest, beach, mountains and city, we capture different types of‘ fragrances ’, “said Arshamian.
The researchers asked 235 people to rank the scents on a scale of pleasant and unpleasant. There are differences between each group, but people generally agree on what they think is pleasant or unpleasant.
Those changes were 41% explained by the molecular structure of a scent and 54% by personal preference, the researchers said.
“It’s based on learning personal preference but it can affect our genetic makeup,” Arshamian said.
The reason why people in other places find some fragrances better than others is that they increase the quality of life during the growing season. man, he said.
“Right now, we know that there is a global scent perception that is guided by molecular structure and explains why we like or dislike a certain scent,” says Arshamian. “The next step is to learn why this is by applying this knowledge to what happens in the brain when we smell a scent.”
