Taking care of yourself is risky business
Understanding risk, and how it is presented, can help you make better decisions about your health.
Are you a risk taker? Even if you think of yourself as the cautious type, you take risks more often than you realize. We don't mean the really dangerous stuff, like skydiving or snake handling. We're talking about the smaller risks you take each day without thinking about them — driving a car, using a statin to lower your cholesterol, living with a pacemaker, or choosing to have one of those heart scans you heard advertised on the radio.
