I don't remember being scared of all these health problems when I was young. Do you?

Lots of questions on heart, respiratory, etc. problems. In the young. I was thinking about other things. Not being sick.

How about you? And why do you think the young are so worried?

Just curious. Thanks

Update:

Thanks oldman I like your input. But that wasn't the question.

Sorry about the question I must have been hitting the shift button.

Update 2:

Weird my computer is acting up :)

    I was only scared of 2 things when I was a kid.

    1. Adults

    2. Getting Old

    They seemed to be the ones who worried about EVERYTHING when I was a kid!

    Medical information was not an easy thing to obtain in the 50's & 60's!

    When I was young, the scare was polio. That was the only one I thought about because everyone was talking about it. I've even gone thru cancer treatments and it has not bothered me at all. You can't be scared of being sick, even severely ill. It is part of life and the best way to get thru it besides getting the proper treatment, is to not be concerned about it, but to live each day without worrying about what might be. It usually never is, anyway.

    If the young are so worried today, then parents and TV are making them think that way.

    I'm not. Life is all about dying, and how we live in the mean time. We all die, it's just a difference in how and when.

    Additional: Oh, sorry. My opinion is that most young people have no belief system in life being for a purpose. For them life is just a here and not here thing. And they have been brainwashed into believing all this germaphobic and other scary stuff about health and dying. How can they help but be scared?

    It's no use being scared, in fact stress (as you should know) will age a body faster than anything. Learn to do everything you can to strengthen the body/mind and avoid much of the aging process as long as possible.
