← Back to: List of phobias


Turophobia (from the Greek word turi, meaning "cheese", and phobos, "fear") is the fear of cheese. People suffering this phobia would avoid consuming cheesy stuff like cheese pizza. People fear cheese often because of their gooey appearance and cheesy taste. Turophobes would have difficult time getting near cheese and may result in cold sweat upon sight of cheese. Some turophobes even fear the words cheese, cheesy, and similarly-sounded words and phrases.

Turophobia is an uncommon phobia, but Melissa North from Kent University in Ohio is a notable turophobe.
