Why Do Some People Hate Them?

A study by Cornwall College found that sprouts contain a chemical, similar to phenylthiocarbamide, which only tastes bitter to people who have a variation of a certain gene.

The lucky half don’t taste the bitterness usually associated, and therefore like them a whole lot more than everyone else.
