We often hear that we live in a risk-filled world, where the food we eat, the lifestyle choices we make and even the cars we drive may endanger our personal health and safety, or even the health of the planet. But not all risks are created equal, and this talk will explain some of the ways we can better understand comparative risks. These often involve tradeoffs between the benefits we gain from our choices, versus any potential harms. I will illustrate these tradeoffs starting with examining the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and compare any potential risks with those from overall diet and lifestyle choices, and some ideas on how our personal genetic background affects our personal risk levels.
