A recent study by Eurobarometer reveals that one out of four Italians fear environmental pollution more than the effects of the economic crisis. This concern reflects the recent environmental disaster in Japan, according to farmer's association Colidretti, which has increased awareness of the negative effects of nuclear power. Eurobarometer data also reveals other fears: 20 percent of Italians' greatest fear is the economic crisis; 17 percent fear low-quality and expired foods that can harm health; 11 percent fear the risk of an automobile accident; and 10 percent worry about crime levels and about falling ill.
