Germany's Federal Institute for Risk Assessment said Monday that the cocaine level was too low to pose a health risk. It planned to produce a more detailed report Wednesday.This kind of reporting / overreaction is mild when compared to the median. Aptly illustrated by Jorge Cham over at PhDComics.com.
