Giaourtiophobia (pronounced “jour-tio-phobia”) (from Greek giaourtio, "yogurt") is the fear of yogurts. One reason why some people fear yogurts because they contain lactose, which is intolerant to some people. Another reason is learning that yogurts contain [good] bacteria. Yet another reason is their gooeyness of yogurts in taste and appearance. One more reason is their stinky smell of yogurts. Since yogurts are junk food, people suffering junkcibophobia would also fear yogurts.
