    Garcia - Conditioned taste aversion takes place when a person, or animal consumes certain foods resulting in a negative response, like vomiting or nausea. This is an adaptive trait, or a survival mechanism that trains the body to avoid poisonous or harmful substances. Dr. John Garcia first discovered this trait when working with rats. In fact, this phenomenon is also sometimes called as the Garcia effect.
