There is not much natural in man-designed GM food. Survival in nature is often manifested by chemicals/strategies that prevent something from being devoured? But I am looking forward to expert's opinions on this!
But then humans are very good at acquiring tastes and then celebrating them.

Many spices are supposed by nature to be poisons or at least "leave me alone because I taste disgusting" deterrents, but we caught onto the taste and even put them in our food intentionally.

Which is why small children typically don't like spicy food.

If you want to be fundamental about it, the only food that actually wants to be eaten is fruit and nuts, because that serves the spreading of the seeds.

Leaves, stalks and roots do not want to be eaten. Even less so anything that crawls, walks or flies.
