Description:
The indispensable guide to everyone and everything you should be afraid of or worried about! Satirists Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf have assembled an inventory of things poised to harm, maim, or kill you - all of them based on actual research about the perils of everyday life. They cite evidence that everyday things we consider healthy - eating leafy greens, flossing, washing our hands - are actually harmful, and items we thought were innocuous - drinking straws, flip-flops, neckties, skinny jeans - pose life-threatening dangers.
