Survey finds American adults are risk takers

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - We're not smart cookies when it comes to
eating cookie dough, and too often engage in all kinds of other
risky behavior.
Those are the findings of a Consumer Reports telephone survey of
1,000 adults.
It found nearly 3 of every 4 Americans put cotton swabs inside
their ears, risking a perforated eardrum. Nearly 4 in 10 admit
eating raw cookie dough, which can carry salmonella.
Only half the respondents have a carbon monoxide detector at
home and 61 percent don't have a rubber mat in the shower. Thirteen
percent admitted sometimes drinking beer while using power tools.
The margin of error of 3 percentage points.
