Loss of Taste
If you like to enjoy food (which is most, right?), then losing your taste is probably something you can't fathom. A study conducted on 62 young men who were smokers found that the taste buds on smokers’ tongues were flatter than the buds on the tongues of the non-smokers. So what does this all mean? Flat taste buds result in a dull, distorted taste or completely absent. And what's even more concerning is that this loss of taste can be permanent.
