Reena's Question

Reena Kapoor came to America from India, and on her blog she ponders a big question about life in the U.S:
How do you take a nation of people who have among the most prosperous lives, best chances for survival when diagnosed with deadly diseases AND live among the longest lives in the world with among the cleanest air and water not only in the world but in human history and convince them that they should be scared, really scared of just about everything?
She doesn't actually have an answer.  She's looking for one.  So if you've got a theory, feel free to leave her a comment.

It's hard to keep your mental function clear
when your emotions are roiled by fear.
