In light of what is known of the cognitive, social, developmental, and evolutionary psychology of human food choice, the anxiety and resistance prompted by genetically modified (GM) foods is unsurprising. The underlying psychological mechanisms that govern food preferences suggest why GM foods have become so controversial so easily. Views of government regulation and business practices also play a role in the public reaction to GM foods.
