ONE MAN’S MEAT IS ANOTHER MAN’S POISON

This ‘saying’ expresses the idea that all human beings are very different.

What suits one person does not suit another person at all

Something that one person finds really good for them, good to eat, good to taste is considered by another person to be really awful, even likely to be very bad for them.

It is thought that the saying came originally from a Roman poet and philosopher Titus Lucretius Carus (known as Lucretius).  The original Latin version is “one man’s food is another man’s poison”
