Deadly strawberries Oct 22, 2014

It reminds me of news about a "deadly strawberry disease" the portuguese media were talking about some years ago. People stopped eating strawberries altogether. It turned out the disease was deadly only for the strawberry plants.

It shows how in difficult times clear and simple information becomes increasingly important.
