When you put food in your mouth, odor molecules from that food travel through the passage between your nose and mouth to olfactory receptor cells at the top of your nasal cavity, just beneath the brain and behind the bridge of the nose. If mucus in your nasal passages becomes too thick, air and odor molecules can't reach your olfactory receptor cells. Thus, your brain receives no signal identifying the odor, and everything you eat tastes much the same. You can feel the texture and temperature of the food, but no messengers can tell your brain, "This cool, milky substance is chocolate ice cream." The odor molecules remain trapped in your mouth. The pathway has been blocked off to those powerful perceivers of smell--the olfactory bulbs.

Thanks for the feedback!
if by to get rid of it i say drink some hot sauce or flamin hots that works for me but ofcourse it will come out so youll need a tissue
Much of what you perceive as taste is actually smell, so when you have a stuffed up nose and can't smell anything you only "taste" what your taste buds are sensing. In that st…ate you're actually getting a pretty good indication of the sensations you receive from just your taste buds without the help of your sense of smell. I've actually heard it from people who have lost their sense of smell that they would rather have lost their sense of taste.
Well you get a stuffy nose when scold is coming up so don't take the chance and take some medicne yours tylia cedeno
The nasal cavity gets rotund/fat/big and clogs it up; you get an infection
yes try hot sauces in soup
when you have a stuffy nose you should try to stay in bed for some part of the day, rub vicks on ur neck, chest and forehead and use a blankt and hot water bottle to stay nice… and warm, get well soon!!
They don't want to pay for us, thus saving more money for themselves.
you can taste food, but it tastes bland. your nose helps you differenciate tastes. plugging your nose cuts off the oxygen going to your olfactory senses, which is a componet t…o being able to taste food.
Because it has buggers.
cocaine constricts the blood vessels that deliver nutrients and oxygen to the nose tissues. If snorting persists or cocaine is touching the nasal membranes for a prolonged per…iod of time, the tissue can become dry and rupture, causing bleeding that sometimes is and sometimes is not noticed (it can be at capillary level or bigger, resulting in nosebleeds); when the body senses that there has been any amount oof bleeding, it will send a response for it to swell so it can repair damaged tissue. This response is based on what i have read about cocaine and what i have sudies about phisiology.
NO! the baby will not be able to survivE! dont ever kill a baby!
Ive done this experiment many times. and i know that a lemon tastes like an orange. also there are many things you cant taste at all, like you cant taste sugar. when i did my …experiments though, many times i failed because my tester didnt tell me whether they tasted anything or not, they just guessed based on the texture of the food. i hope this helped :)
The tongue has only a few basic tastes, sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami (the weird one). The nose however can absorb far more from a scent than the taste buds.
We have 5 senses: smell, taste, touch, sight, and hearing. Often times this sense overlap, or interact. It's a phenomenon called sensory interaction. The correlation between s…mell and taste is one of the most obvious ones that we can actual experience, say when we have a cold and food doesn't taste as good. In order to savor a food, it's aroma is important. The smell of a food can amplify its taste. For example, a strawberry scent can make a drink taste sweeter. If you were to plug your nose and close your eyes, you could rely only on your seemingly weaker sense of taste and your sense of texture to identify a food. A slice of apple would be virtually indistinguishable from a chunk of raw potato. Flavor is essentially a combination of texture, taste and smell. Many people, particularly those who have texure issues, do not want to eat a food that tastes the same but is softer than usual. Sometimes the texture can offset the taste and make the food completely displeasing. But smell is important. By smelling an apple's fresh sweetness, and hearing the crisp when you slice into it, your taste is amplified because you know the familiar taste of an apple and what to expect. Through the combined senses, you know that what your eating is an apple and not a raw potato. People who have a hard time with hearing can also benefit from seeing someone mouth words, or have an improved sense of hearing by having closed captioning and being able to read along. Since the words they are hearing are being associated with words they can see or familiar mouth movements, the brain can organize interpret the hearing as if it were improved, even though it's just as bad. It takes all of our senses, in combination, to be able to completely interpret and appreciate the world. However, because of this interaction, the loss or deterioration of one sense can often be offset by the other 4 senses, and help to make sense of the world.
because it cuts off one of the main sences in tasting foods.
Yes. You can taste, but it will definitely taste different, very different. To see for your self put several jolly ranchers, starbursts, gum or lightsavers (wrapped and differ…ent flavors) on a table in front of you. Close your eyes, and move them around allot. Plug your nose tightly (eyes still closed) unwrap one in pop it in your mouth. Keep it in there, nose still plugged. Make a prediction of what flavor it is. Take the candy out and open your eyes, I guarantee you'll be surprised
