It depends. There are plenty of instances where medical screening has been dialed back because it was found to be detrimental. 80 year old men with newly found prostate cancer really don't need to know about it. They will die of heart disease before the prostate cancer gets them, and the urologist is going cut them and make their final year or two miserable if they go after the cancer. Better not to know.

There are many other similar examples.

For a 20 year old kid, it's probably worth learning about issues.

not acting isn't the same as not knowing

This is TRUE, I don't want to know everything and as long as I feel good and healthy I'm fine....I don't have to seek out a test for everything in my body system as goes on today.

My folks lived into 90's and did all to avoid docs and of course back then none of these today's tests were out there......

We all have cancer cells in our bodies and why dig them up and do more damage by activating more.

You should have just stopped typing. You were making sense, and then went off the rails.

No it isn't but since you're against science you haven't a clue why.
