Lover of hedgehogs and harp seals, a writer, procrastinator, vegetarian, libertarian, Capriquarian, horror fan and foodie. I enjoy long walks on the beach, tequila, and people who leave me the hell alone.

    One study in 2003, for example, looked at the BBC’s health news coverage over several months, and calculated how many people had to die from a given cause for one story to appear. 8,571 people died from smoking for each story about smoking; but there were three stories for every death from new variant CJD, or ‘mad cow disease’.32 Another, in 1992, looked at print-media coverage of drug deaths, and found that you needed 265 deaths from paracetamol poisoning for one story about such a death to appear in a paper; but every death from MDMA received, on average, one piece of news coverage.33
