I get the sarcasm, Linkat, but I don't think it is appropriate. Why wouldn't you sincerely trust that the government is working in your best interest?
The government has slowly been raising your life expectancy, while giving you fantastically clean water and monitoring food for safety and making sure the things you buy won't kill you.
You can come up with a couple of cases here and there... but overall the government has done a fantastic job by any measure.
Human life expectancy used to be 40 year. Now it has about doubled. Child mortality has been cut in half. Death by faulty products or food poisonings (which used to kill thousands each year) have been cut to almost zero.
I don't know why you think the government would put you at risk and not tell you. Given the record of the government in the past 50 years, I don't think this fear is at all reasonable. Given the facts of how well the government has done, you might call such a fear "paranoia".
