In an article in the NYTimes about people who don't like Cilantro:

“When your brain detects a potential threat, it narrows your attention,” Dr. Gottfried told me in a telephone conversation. “You don’t need to know that a dangerous food has a hint of asparagus and sorrel to it. You just get it away from your mouth.”
I used to dislike cilantro, but I have grown accustomed to it. I think I associate with Latin American food and Vietnamese food, both of which I love. I never knew that spring rolls were all I needed to eliminate a perceived threat.
