Rob Griffiths had to quit his job as a pub chef because of an uncontrollable fear of beans.  The man thinks that his rare fear or beans, leguminophobia, is because of his brothers throwing beans at him as a child.

[The] staff had to prepare the beans while I hid in the back." Now a window cleaner, the 31-year-old said he can't even walk by baked beans in cans at the supermarket.
