Professor: Well...that's certainly fascinating!

教授:这太神奇了!

But...so this biologist is basically claiming that people who like to eat these vegetables actually have some sort of sensory deficit?

但是……所以这名生物学家基本上是在说,喜欢吃这些蔬菜的人其实是因为某种感觉缺失?

Sort of makes us picky eaters than normal ones, doesn't it?

这让我们比普通人更挑食,不是吗?

I mean, that's kind of turning things on their head, isn't it?

我的意思是这使人的想法发生改变,不是吗?

Student: Well...then again, it wouldn't be the first time, would it?

学生:而且这也不是第一次了,对吗?

Think of it this way: humans originally needed to have a stronger sensitivity to bitter-tasting foods so they could learn what plants were good for them and which ones might be poisonous.

这么想吧:人类起初需要对尝起来发苦的食物更敏感,因此他们可以了解什么食物有益,什么食物也许有毒。

But at some point, as people figured out what they could safely eat, this need became less crucial and a segment of the population lost that ability.

但是在某种情况下,当人们了解了什么食物可以放心使用后,这种需求就变得不那么重要了,而且很多人会丧失这种能力。

Professor: OK. Well, you make a compelling case.

教授:好的,你做了一个很吸引人的方案。

I can't wait to hear more about this when you deliver your report.

我迫不及待地想要在你做报告时了解更多。

According to the student, why was it advantageous for early humans to be sensitive to bitter tastes?
