The fear of spiders within the DNA
Taking into account the opinion of researchers, arachnophobia is considered a product of human evolution. The fear of spiders started so long ago that fear entered the DNA inhabitant of our planet. This is indicated by the experiments of scientists.

Professionals conducted an experiment, which was attended by 252 inhabitant of our planet. The test showed the drawings to the embarrassing images of animals, insects and inanimate objects such as flies, mosquitoes, wasps, spiders, steel needles. The researchers measured the speed of reaction of the brain on the displayed image. It was found that people respond faster to spiders than other animals.

Considering the opinion of the researchers, this is because the fear of spiders is considered a product of human evolution. "A large number of spiders colonized Africa for millions of years before the coming of man. People lived in constant fear of the risk of conflict with spiders in their ancient environment," the newspaper quoted Independent biologist Joshua from new Colombian Institute of the United States.

But there are other theories of people dislike spiders. According to the teachers of psychology in Plymouth Institute, John Mey, suggested that angular legs, dark colors and extravagant movement made the arachnid unpleasant for the residents of our planet. "We like bright butterflies and ladybugs, but black spiders with long legs and sharp, their shape and color evoke strong negative Association," said Mae.

In addition, the fear of spiders is the root cause of social - having regard to the opinion of a scientist, it is passed to the child from the parents. Children copy the fear of arachnids in adults, whereby they may develop a phobia of arthropods.
