Ignorance is bliss!!

Ignorance is bliss, or is it?

What if, we were all oblivious to the pesticides, antibiotics in our food, the smoke/smog in our atmosphere, the toxins in the drinking water and the problems with all our daily lives (carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, "tennis elbow") and a lot others.

Wouldn't life have been more simpler and easier without the knowledge of all these problems?

Knowing about these problems only makes you more wary and ever more cautious.
Ooh! shouldn't be doing this... i would contract that..
and the likes

Trying to avoid contracting one of the many diseases associated with modern life (by modern, I mean our amenity driven lives) itself causes stress.

Then, I start to wonder, what if I knew nothing of it! Ignorance alone would save me from knowing about so many problems and without having known about it, I would never worry about it.

That said,
if we didn't know cigarettes killed or lead (Pb) lead to mutation in babies, a majority of us would still be smoking happily and painting our houses with lead-based paint. I guess this would be one of the many joys of being cognisant.
