It's not your fault you're wrong, cilantro-haters. You're wrong all the way down to your genes. Probably.

Ever have someone chew you out for including cilantro in a dish, yelling at you for liking something that tastes like soap? We've all met that person, and they act really certain that they're right and that you are an idiot for thinking this tasty green plant tastes like a tasty green plant. Fortunately for your sanity and any semblance of logic and justice in the universe, scientists finally determined that at least half of the 4% to 14% of people who are convinced (wrongly) that cilantro tastes like soap have extra copies of a smell-receptor gene that detects soap-type smells. A gene that makes you wrong, in other words.
