Coffee Lover? Blame Your Genes

For some, coffee is the true nectar of the gods, while others won't touch a drop of the stuff. Now, a new study reveals how genes influence people's preferences for a cup o' Joe. Researchers analyzed genetic data from studies of more than 120,000 coffee drinkers of European and African-American ancestry. According to the study, published today Oct. 7 in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, they found eight locations of the human genome linked with coffee drinking , six of which had never been linked to consumption of the beverage before. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/JCh6RcGJbyg/ http://www.wochit.com
