PSYCHOLOGY

Morbid fear of cooking

As with many of the “phobias” seen on the seemingly ubiquitous phobia lists, the litmus test of a term’s value is not whether one can juxtapose two classic Greek roots to form an etymologically valid word, but rather, is it actually used in the working medical parlance? Mageirocophobia got 307 hits on 19.01.2016; one doubts that it has ever been used in practice. We all know people who don’t like to cook, but that hardly makes it a phobia.
