Older people and taste...

Asked April 29, 2016, 11:02 AM EDT

I'm an 8th grader who's doing a science fair, and for it, I need to ask a question to an expert and for my experiment, I'm doing it about if older people lose the taste.

As a person gets older their sense of taste diminishes. This is why you see senior citizens adding salt or sugar to their food that has all ready been seasoned!
