First, let’s figure out why we are so attracted to sweets . In general, this is the work of evolution: people have learned to feel sweet taste and consider it tasty to survive – poisonous berries and plants are usually bitter. This hypothesis is supported by the fact that strict predators , such as cats, do not recognize a sweet taste at all. They eat mostly meat, and sweets are hidden in carbohydrates … We, as omnivores, have a special tongue zone that perceives a sweet taste .
