The British Medical Journal study conducted prior to the second (attempted) London bombing found that some 31% London citizens are severely stressed and traumatised by the bombings.

Some 46% of those surveyed said they did not feel safe travelling by tube and 33% did not feel safe in central London.

Muslim believers suffered the most - with some 2/3 of them being affected and other strong believers suffered more than an average Jo. Now thare is a scientific proof that
irrational frame of mind is bad for your health.

Puzzels me that somebody believing in a life after life, soul, karma, reinkarnation and what not are scared of death.

Perhaps a percentage of the percentage fear being wrongly accused,
or shot dead for wearing a rucksack, or not wearing a rucksack.
