Do you think the more we know about our health, the more ill we become?


In recent times, everyone seems to be ill with something. They are either allergic to something, have a pain that is a result of a disease, or are suffering from some neurological problem. If we didn't have a label to put on these illnesses, and problems, do you think we would feel better? Do you feel people are using these as a reason for not achieving more in their lives? Are we turning into a bunch of hypochondriacs? Image credit: Pixabay and PublicDomainPictures

    Good point. Maybe where some choose to use knowledge as a preventive measure and a guide to better health, others choose to use it as a crutch and an excuse for their lack of perceived achievements in their lives. Thanks for such a detailed answer..

    I feel that unlike yourself, some don't take a logical approach. Some people almost want to find something wrong with themselves and find glory in admitting they are ill. Perhaps it is M√ľnchausen syndrome in many. Thank you for your comment.

    Drug interactions is a complicated issue and only one a pharmacist, not a doctor is qualified to understand. I fear too many doctors are sponsored by the drug manufactures.

    True, I don't believe all go on to become hypochondriacs. Some people though, do love the added drama in their lives. Thanks for your response.

    I agree, I think a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. We now can diagnosis ourselves using Google and of course, usually we are wrong. Thanks for your answer.

    As you say, the more money one has the better the health care and knowledge. Thanks for your comment.
