A video is released by SciShow, a series of science-related videos on YouTube, reveals that why 4 – 14 percent of the population consider cilantro as soapy tasted.

“How cilantro tastes to you has a lot to do with your genes,” says SciShow’s Hank Green.

These genes pick up on the smell of aldehyde chemicals.

Aldehyde chemicals are found in both, cilantro and soap.
