    In every culture, and every language, there is a word for 'illness' or 'sickness.'  But this does not mean that every individual around the globe is familiar with the English word 'illness,'

    It depends on who you mean by "everyone", but sickness is probably more commonly understood than illness.

    Most native English speakers know the word, unless they are young children or live in isolated locations.

    No, I wouldn't say that, for what of the billions of non-English speakers that have never heard of it?

    Not everyone, no absolute statement is completely true.
