Panicking the Panicked

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:
Step 1: Research people with panic disorder.
Step 2: Publish your results.
Step 3: Leak it to the press.
And what's the best line of the press article? This one:
"Dr. Walters cautions panic attack sufferers should not worry about these findings, as the increased risk of CHD and heart attack is small. The vast majority of panic attack sufferers will not go on to develop the conditions."
It's funny if it weren't so sad.
