Is this an application of the "Not A Unique Snowflake" Principle?

turnberryknkn, M.D., comments in my journal:
I think 30% of my adult/teenage case load through the years consisted of patients who ended up under our care because somehow they thought various facts somehow didn't apply to them. Such as...
  • Yes, chronic smoking *does* cause lung cancer
  • Yes obesity *does* lead to heart disease
  • and diabetes
  • And speaking of diabetes, failure to take your insulin regularly and control your blood sugars *does* lead to blindness, toes rotting off, and other badness...
And that would just be the last two weeks on service...

Context has a few other items in the list.
