Scientists identify gene associated with dislike of pork.
The Daily Mail refers to research at Duke University in North Carolina, which indicated a link between the OR7D4 gene and a dislike for pork. It is proposed that the gene helps perceive the taste of androstenone, a compound associated with boar taint and described as resembling urine, onions or faeces. People with two copies of the OR7D4 gene were found to be more likely to dislike the taste of pork and bacon, whereas those with one copy or no copies could tolerate or enjoy it.
