There is no such thing as a no-risk human activity.
People even die from choking on food. Maybe we should outlaw food.
In the early years of the environmental movement, bad science combined with PP idealism led to restrictions on the use of DDT to control mosquitoes, which then led to at least tens of millions of needless deaths. ...."
