    It severely impedes one's sense of taste.  It also exposes one to unnecessary dangers as bad smells are often associated with something harmful.  Furthermore, it leads to one losing dates because one doesn't realize it's time for a shower.

    Ron pretty well cornered the answer! I have also known people who are under weight because of their lack of sense. If they cannot smell food, their brain does not receive the message of delicious aromas. Therefore it leads to a lack of hunger and salivation.
