Humans are more likely to die of an accident at home than at work, to be killed on the roads than in the air, and get cancer from x-rays rather than nuclear power. But despite what experts say, most of us continue to behave according to our feelings about risk, rather than the reality of risk itself. In an effort to make sense, Geoff Watts talks to those who know about risk, in theory and in practice.
