Is ignorance truly a bliss?
In terms of medical problems, is it better not to know too much? Share your views whether ignorance in such cases is better.
There is an old saying in English language - 'Ignorance is bliss'. In simple terms, it means that in case one is not aware about the problems, he/she will not have to worry for the same. This saying suddenly flashed in my mind on reading about various medical reasons for feeling lightheadedness or giddiness etc. It was mentioned that a drop in blood pressure or heart rate may cause lightheadedness and one may faint or 'pass out' also in such cases.
Earlier, we used to simply come to know about the sad demise of persons of old age. But nowadays, often the cause of the death like 'massive heart attack', 'brain stroke' or 'kidney failure' etc. are also mentioned along with the bad news of death. Does it make any difference? Is detailed knowledge of medical causes of death helpful for a common man?
In this context, let us discuss if ignorance is truly a bliss?
