The article goes into how disgust affects economics. According to Yale psychologist Paul Bloom, money still feels unnatural because it's a historically recent innovation, which means that we feel fine trading human organs, but not purchasing them.
The article also talks about the role of culture in shaping morals: "In Europe and Japan horse meat on a menu would stir no more comment than macaroni and cheese would in an American diner."
