Abstract

In this article on the public perception of risks Paul Bellaby considers three examples of risks to children in the UK—an insignificant risk (autism caused by MMR vaccine), a real but probably small risk (vCJD from BSE), and a real and demonstrably larger risk (injuries from road crashes) and contrasts the perceptions of the risks by parents.
