However, if you want to talk on the level of a worst case scenario, the thing to be worried about is that we have no clue what exactly is causing it. We don't know if it's genetic, environment-residual, whatever. And what if it is something genetic and someone can figure that out?
Well that sounds great! We can come up with geneticly based disease-defenses! We can.... promote genetic manipulation? Uhh... hmm. If it turns out there's some magic gene to prevent illness, what could that mean to society? Human breeding programs? Have your child's genes pre-emptively spliced today! Gauranteed to prevent most major forms of illness for life!
It's kind of scary thinking what kinds of changes could sweep through humanity if a panacea were to emerge. Long, illness-free life? Sounds great! Can't afford it? Sucks to be you! Say goodby to the gene pool! Marriages based on genetics, human rights conflicted, ignored? Environmental destruction amplified, resources split thin to support the growing population of undying humans?
I'm almost thankful that no one has been able to figure it out so far. It's the kind of thing I just don't want to know, much like "when I'm going to die" and whatnot.
I actually have a similar thing, though the one time i had Flu i was just violently ill once and just slept the entire day.
Ive got awards from my schools and collage saying 'congratuwelldone for never missing a day of school/collage'.
My only bane is Food poisoning, where it has to be like, super strong food posioning for it to take me down. Ohterwise im never ill...
We should make a tv show about us, teaming up to fight bacteria and viruses all over the world! And our arch nemisis would be the Almight Infesting Diseas Supervillan. the show would start as we'd climb out of a giant medicine jar and don the mighty latex gloves of awsomeness.
.... i need a life..
