Counting tastebuds may seem like a tedious job to many, but to some it's driven by a passion for the science of taste.

Horizon: The Truth about Taste
What if you could get that chocolate cake kick from eating a plate of beans? Taste is one of our most primal senses, intimately linked to pleasure and enjoyment, yet it is also one of the least understood. Horizon sets out to uncover what the newly emerging science of taste could do for us. Because if we can understand what happens in our brains from the moment food hits our tongues, we may find a way to make it easy to eat healthily.

Welcome to BBC Earth Lab! Here we answer all your curious questions about science in the world around you (and further afield too). If theres a question you have that we havent yet answered let us know in the comments on any of our videos and it could be answered by one of our Earth Lab experts.
