Myths & Cultural, Barriers in Modern Medicine-Book-3-Kannada
Myth, a symbolic narrative, usually of unknown origin and at least partly traditional, that ostensibly relates actual events and that is especially associated with religious belief.
While I understand, these myths have been prevalent for generations;
- They gave hope to our friends and family members.
- But, we have to understand that more than 100 years back, knowledge was very limited.
- We need to weigh both risks and benefits equally whenever we try to treat any medical conditions by following old myths.
- We did not have choices for the last several generations, but now we do have choices.
