As far as I'm concerned there is simply much too much info out there to make us all nuts. Sensationalism is the order of the day. One newscast tries to outdo another. They must compete to make the biggest, most shocking splash. How can we protect ourselves?
By being calm, being reasonable, being optimistic, confident, and watching as little news as possible. This way we strengthen our own immune system which fights off invaders that can appear at any time, anywhere. Eat well, lots of fluids, water, tea, plenty fruit, and I add Vit. C every day. Let reason and confidence prevail and not the shock promoters.
