Did you know...
The eardrum string connects the sense of taste and hearing together!
This happens through a branch of the facial nerve that connects the ear ganglia and taste buds to our brain. By passing through the middle ear, the sounds we hear do not affect the taste of food.
However, there are foods that have a negative impact on hearing. Doctors recommend that we give up salt, sugar, alcohol, quinine, processed foods and nicotine addiction to allow our hearing to perform at its best.
