May I suggest you stop reading the Daily Mail, which thrives on appeals to lower common denominators. There's much better out there to choose from.
Tom,

Good suggestion. It was probably a poor choice in media to frame my point but that story with all the same hype is running all over the place.

The media exploits our collective risk illiteracy and the result is less overall public safety than if they were to cover real risk, even if it were just in approximate proportion.

It's making the public neurotic about things they should have confidence in and that detracts from addressing more deadly risks.
