It could have a lot to do with health anxiety. People have a lot of access to information, stories, news reports etc etc than they ever used to. Those receiving this saturation of information can start to convince themselves that they have whatever it is they've read. Becomes a self fulfilling condition where they feel ill even though they aren't and it becomes impossible to tell because logic has long departed the scene.
