Most people gravitate to cooked food (over raw food) without thinking about it. What is the reason for this among people - both in a general sense and specific to you.

You express much of my stance on the matter in your answer. I agree the initial factor is 'what people grow up with'. And later its an unwillingness to deviate much from that. I lament how much fat & salt people add to raw food. Thanks for ur ans
It is true that some foods are more likely to cause illness if left uncooked, and yes nutrition is a factor. Thanks for your comment Tamara.
Thank you so much for your response. I think that your point probably represents the general concensus - cooked food does indeed tend to be tastier...
And yes, I do agree that it is easier to feel satisfied after eating cooked food.
I think that your answer reflects how most people feel about it - it's a taste preference thing. Thanks for commenting!
Thank you for your detailed response. You have raised many interesting points. Of course people do eat a lot of raw food in addition to cooked food. But it so often seems to be mostly cooked food - and some raw...rarely the other way around.

I totally agree that it is easier to eat. Until I got a dental bridge I never realised how much cooking food affected how easily i could eat it. Now I avoid some raw foods for this very reason. Thanks for your comment Barbara.
