Why are we so scared of swine flu?
I was linked to this graph earlier today.
Ask yourself why we hear so much about a disease with such a relatively small death-toll.
Ask yourself why we don't hear about all the other much more important diseases.
Ask yourself why we countenance motor vehicles but not war.
Ask yourself why we're so bad at judging risk.
Ask your local pharmacist how much money he's made in the last 300 days on face-masks, hand-wash, Tamiflu and so on.
