UK's cancer research scientists have studied 103 pairs of identical and 111 pairs of non-identical twins to find whether their taste habits are inherited or not.

Researchers gave 77 food items grouped into 4 categories including meat, fish, desserts, and vegetables and fruit to the children and found that tastes for food like meat and fish are strongly inherited in children's.
