Your tongue is a organ in your mouth. Your tongue has tiny bumps called papillae.  Taste buds collect nerve like cells that connect to your brain.  There is also a thing called a taste map (4 common tastes) Doesn’t exist.  (Hoffman, 2017) A few tongue conditions you can have is Thrush ( Candidiasis), Macroglossia (Big tongue), Burning mouth/ burning tongue syndrome.  ( Relatively common) (Hoffman,2017) Tongue test you could do is a  Biopsy.  A few Tongue treatment you could do Steroid gel, Silver nitrate, Viscous lidocaine.  (Hoffman, 2017)Some people get taste and flavor confused.  Taste is a chemical and cells that make up taste buds. Flavor is multiple senses.  Your taste relies on certain molecules in  the food you eat. Molecules on our tongue sends a signal to our brain and process it there. The processed signals tell our brain what kind of food we’re eating and allows us to make certain decisions on how we react to it.  For example: Sweetness is associated with high calorie food. Bitterness might signal something like danger.  Many toxins are associated with this particular taste.  ( Works 2017)Chemicals interact with receptors that trigger the signals sent to your brain. Sugars are recognized by the receptors because of the sweet taste. Sodium is also recognized because of the salty, acid that make the sourness. Bitterness is the most sensitive out of all the tastes.  ( Works 2017)Its well known that taste and appetite are linked. As we age the number of receptors on our tongue declines. By the time you’re 20 you have half of the taste receptors you have than when you were a child.  ( Works 2017)Your nose has something called nostrils. Your nostrils and your nasal are separated by a wall called the spectrum. Your spectrum is a thin piece of bone., Your septum is made of something called a cartilage. The nasal cavity connects to the back of your throat. Inside your nose is a thin layer of tissue called mucous membrane. All of the germs, dust and mucus could irritate your lungs.
