Loud noise may be linked to bad airline food

LOS ANGELES They say it's not the food - it's the noise of the plane engines.

Researchers say the loud background noise upsets our senses and makes us enjoy food less than we otherwise would.

They had people test food wearing headphones with various levels of noise pumped in.

The more noise, the less people registered sweet or salty flavors.

So the next time you fly, you might try putting in ear plugs before eating your meal.
