Threats that aren't really hazardous

Reply Sat 2 Jun, 2012 12:21 pm
According to an Article in Time Magazine, Fearing Well, by Jeff Wise...

Quote: Psychologists say we innately misjudge risk, often becoming instinctively fixated on perceived threats that aren't really hazardous, flying, insects, gluton, cell phone radiation, and wandering asteroids, while overlooking real danger, sharks, cancer, viruses, lightning, and global warming, because they don't set off alarm bells.

Other things people fear that aren't hazardous are ghosts, Arab terrorists, hell, end of earth predictions, black cats, politicians, Iran, and North Korea.

You always have it in your power to admit that you are powerless. Ashleigh Brilliant
