The 'hip' or 'in' fad is not necessarily always the safest choice. Insure.com's Marjorie Musick uncovers some hidden dangers in the article, "The 5 safest choices for 10 important decisions." While most would think an eco-friendly, subcompact car would be an economical and safe option, they would be proven wrong. In fact, there are many perceptions that are inaccurate when determining what is safe and what is not for the general public. For instance, most would not think that fruits carry, on average, "21 percent of food-borne illnesses" over all other food groups.
The public should not only be concerned for their general safety concerning issues such as food choices, and large purchases such as vehicles, but also when deciding what city in which to live. John Marini, COO and Vice President of Adjusters International, offers his insights in regards to the cities safest from natural disasters. Within this article, Marini states that "Natural disasters can be very costly for homeowners. Knowing which cities are the most likely to be affected will help them properly insure their property and be protected from resulting expensive insurance claims." In the event of buying a home or relocating, it is important to look at what natural disasters tend to affect that area and plan accordingly.
