Genetics may help determine how good your meal tastes, according to a report published May 2 in the open access journal PLoS ONE. The study investigated how people with different versions of the gene for an odor receptor gene, which is sensitive to a specific compound naturally present in pig meat, rated the taste of different pork samples. In both smell and taste tests, participants' response depended on the version of the gene they had, with one version resulting in more favorable...

If you don't like the taste of pork, the reason may be that your genes cause you to smell the meat more intensely, according to a new study. Duke University Medical Center scientists, working with colleagues in Norway, found that about 70 percent of people have two functional copies of a gene linked to an odor receptor that detects a compound in male mammals called androstenone, which is common in pork. People with one or no functional copies of the gene can tolerate the scent of...

A Simon Fraser University researcher is among four scientists who argue that cholesterol may slow or stop cancer cell growth.

The scientists came to their conclusion while trying to understand how cholesterol moves around inside cells in the fat's journey to cell surfaces where it...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
