Coffee & Genetics & Cravings

Drinking coffee and craving more, may be in your genes. Did you know a research has identified a genetic variant in some peoples genetics that may cause one to drink fewer cups of coffee than other individuals?  Almost 2/3 of Americans adults drink a least one cup of coffee daily.  What does this research mean?  Researchers hope this is one step to help determine how genetic links to our food preferences can help reveal the biology behind our eating and drinking behaviors and ultimately how it affects our health. It may give us insight why people like certain foods/drinks over other foods/drinks and assist in finding ways to change non-healthy behaviors.  Amazing stuff, I wonder how it applies to pizza?
