Fear, its one of our most powerful and complex emotions. We're afraid of the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. Have we gone too far? A John Stossel special report. Are We Scaring Ourselves to Death? documents how we are exposed to dangerous-sounding chemicals and technologies...and that we now live longer than ever! John Stossel takes an honest look at many widely-reported dangers--including those Stossel himself explored as a consumer reporter--and considers the issue of actual and perceived risk with a studio audience. Excellent introduction to environmental risks.
