Hypochondria is a disease that makes us docile, governable, conformists. Our culture needs us anxious, fearful, insecure, passive, obedient.
The natives of this culture hypochondriac (who has fear of disease, which is overly concerned about health), when we read, for example, that "anger raises your heart rate and breathing, as well as blood pressure," surely we turn the red lights of imagination and began to fear to rage, for all serious organic changes it produces.
Indeed, a significant amount of people, possessing many or little knowledge of their own anatomy and physiology, believes that an increased heart rate or blood pressure are bad, harmful, pathological worrying, to the point that generators are perhaps more increased heart rate, ...
Fortunately the wonderful natural cybernetics have achieved these changes as an efficient way to adapt to the environment and circumstances.
What is really worrying is that, to be thrown from the stillness or the maximum speed to reach a collective, all of our body is modified to accompany this activity.
If faced with a change, from stillness to sudden movement did not have an answer circulatory and respiratory, would fall dead or could not run to catch the bus.
So it's lucky that these changes happen to us and not a danger or mishap.
Hypochondria is largely a mental pathology favored by those who prefer us not afraid to take risks, we prefer to live dependent referring to the mega-health industry, as if our survival depended on the timely advice, we addicts prefer countless drugs from the first intake disrupt the self healing naturally with all living beings.
Our culture needs us anxious, fearful, insecure, passive, obedient.
