A LOVE of alcohol is in the genes, uno studio ha trovato.
It means hellraisers such as late film star Ollie Reed were born to be wild for the booze.
Researchers found that people’s favourite cibo and drink tastes are influenced by their genes as well as their habits and childhood.
Study author Prof Jim Wilson, di Edimburgo University, disse: “Some people are absolutely born with genes that will make them like the taste of alcohol.
“More than that, we even found genes that gave preferences for specific drinks like white wine, beer or whisky.
“The household you grow up in influences the foods and tastes you like but this shows a significant proportion of it is due to genes you’re born with.”
Ha aggiunto: “There is a whole category of strong-tasting things like olives and alcohol that babies typically don’t like, but many adults learn to like them — our next job is to work out why.”
