Excessive love of sweets cannot be transmitted genetically, therefore, hereditary sweet teeth do not exist in nature. Neuropsychologist Irina Khvingiya announced this to radio Sputnik.
The specialist asked people not to blame their heredity for the love of sweets, since there is no "sweet tooth gene" in nature. However, as Hwingiya clarified, interest in sweets can be passed on from parent to child in other ways. For example, if a woman consumed a lot of chocolate and other sweets during pregnancy, then the baby's need for sweets may persist.
“There is no hereditary sweet tooth. As such, there is no hereditary attachment to sweets,” the specialist emphasized.
The psychologist believes that people may develop a craving for sweets with age due to psychological "anchors": sad, then you need to eat a chocolate bar.
