Picky eaters

I just heard on the news that a study of 7500 adults about picky eating may mean that there is a disorder that can now be identified to do with picky eaters. This does sound like a strange thing to be worrying about when there seem to be more important, life threatening disorders but I guess all those adults who are self conscious about not eating properly are invested in the outcome of this study.

The news brief about this ended by saying that they are not sure if it is more of a biological or psychological disorder. I am a picky eater and I would say that it has more to do with texture and taste that repels me. Some things are just not on my list of good eats while some things I love.

I wonder if it is nature or nurture?
Interesting study.
