← Back to: List of phobias


Halophobia (from Greek hals, "salt") is the fear of salt and salty food. Halophobia is often triggered due to effects of salt intake, like making the foods to taste unpleasant, make them thirsty, and long-term health effects like kidney disease. Halophobes would not have salt shakers on the table and would only eat foods that have no sodium in them, like fruits and vegetables. Symptoms of halophobia include sweating, heart palpations, shaking, and urge to flee.
