Fear of vegetables is lachanophobia! Yes, there are many in the world who are afraid of vegetables. It is an irrational and unwarranted fear of vegetables.
When they see vegetables either on their plate or in market they feel anxiety, panic and start sweating. Some people even say their blood pressure goes up!
The site of vegetables especially like broccoli, cauliflower, sprouts make them feel dread and they won’t even want to touch these vegetables. They will have a panic attack.
Psychological reprogramming to control the anxious response of looking and touching vegetables is one way to overcome this phobia. Another way is make routine trips to supermarket and looking at vegetables like other packed foods and participating in self-help groups is recommended.
