Who hates cilantro? Study aims to find out

This is really interesting to me as I'm American-born and of Chinese descent. I grew up in a household that cooked using cilantro, and I hated it growing up. Now as an adult, decades later, I love cilantro!

The Body Odd - Who hates cilantro? Study aims to find out:

"Researchers found an aversion to cilantro ranged from a low of 3 percent to a high of 21 percent among six different ethnic groups.

Young Canadians with East Asian roots, which included those of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese descent, had the highest prevalence of people who disliked the herb at 21 percent. Caucasians were second at 17 percent, and people of African descent were third at 14 percent.

Among the herb's fans, the group with the fewest number of people who disliked cilantro were those of Middle Eastern background at 3 percent, followed by those of Hispanic and South Asian ancestry at 4 percent and 7 percent respectively."

Tiger Woods turning things around at The Players Championship

Good for Tiger!  I wasn't sure he was going to make the cut.

Tiger Woods turning things around at The Players Championship - ESPN:

"He isn't on the Players Championship leaderboard. His two-day total puts him behind 29 other players. But at least Tiger Woods is still here, which is more than you can say for world No. 1 Rory McIlroy or for Eldrick, circa 2011."

4 golf greats differ on Tiger's future

Any way you look at it, it's going to be a long uphill climb.

4 golf greats differ on Tiger's future - Yahoo! Sports:

"Nicklaus and Player think Woods still has time to rediscover his game and surpass Nicklaus' total. Palmer thinks Woods is ''going to have trouble'' reaching the mark. Trevino thinks it'll be harder for Woods to win four more majors than it was to win the 14 he already owns."
