Risk, Perception, and Response Conference
Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, MA 3/20/2014 - 3/21/2014
Limited attention, emotional reactions, and difficulties in processing risk-related information, among other factors, may lead individuals to act in ways that impair their health or welfare. For example, warnings about mercury in fish can lead people to decrease their overall fish consumption and hence their consumption of healthful omega-3 fatty acids.
