The Taste Buds in The Back of Your Throat

michele cindy | May 28, 2008 11:21 AM

Per a site I read, 6 out of 8 people have taste buds in the back of their throats. Never gave it much thought until I took some allergy RX this morning, eye drops and a nasal spray, the bitter taste still has not dissipated from the back of my throat. Any advantages to these large buds other then bitterness? I never noticed them when I eat... Anyone know of a remedy to get rid of this annoying bitterness?
