What is it that makes you feel disgust? Sour milk? Vomit? A disembodied cadaver? Certain bodily fluids? The feeling of disgust is universal but what sets off that feeling of repulsion varies from culture to culture. For instance, many Brits find the smell and flavor of wintergreen horrible, yet Icelanders find putrid fermented Greenland Shark a gourmet delight.
