He says it was his lifelong dream to own a farm here. The area is renowned for producing some of the world's richest Arabica, the smooth-tasting beans beloved by specialty coffee brewers.<p>"My farm was beautiful, it was big," he says.<p>But then, a plant fungus called coffee rust, or <em>roya</em> in Spanish, hit his crop.<p>"Coffee rust appeared and wiped out everything," he says.<p>That was in 2012, and it was Diaz Viera's first crop.

That's true even though we know that regular screenings and tests often help doctors catch issues early.<p>But of course, humans don't always behave rationally. Sometimes people will go to great lengths to avoid hearing bad news. Social scientists call this sort of behavior information aversion, or the ostrich effect (based on the old myth that ostriches bury their heads in the sand when they're scared).
