October is typically seen as the scariest month of the year given its ties to Halloween. So it's appropriate that the Chapman University Survey of American Fears is now out for 2017, revealing what Americans are afraid of most.

For the third year in a row, Americans are most afraid of the corruption of government officials (74.5 percent afraid or very afraid). The second biggest fear was the American Health Care Act, aka Trumpcare (new this year, with 55.3 percent afraid or very afraid), followed by the pollution of oceans, rivers and lakes (53.1 percent) and pollution of drinking water (50.4 percent).

Here's Why Most Americans Prefer to Treat Pain Without Drugs

  Here's Why Most Americans Prefer to Treat Pain Without Drugs In the midst of an opioid addiction epidemic, a new survey of Americans has found that most prefer to try a non-drug approach to treating their pain over taking medications prescribed by their doctor. The new report, part of the Gallup-Palmer College of Chiropractic Annual Study of Americans, surveyed about 6,300 adults. Nearly two thirds said that they had neck or back pain so great they sought a health care provider for relief, and 54% said they had neck or back pain for at least five years. Yet 78% said they preferred to try other ways to address their physical pain before taking drugs.

This should be in the top ten . Mostly people are only scared of the dark because what might come out is unknown. I think this one should be at the top because most things on this list are feared BECAUSE of this fear.

High medical bills, global warming and climate change, North Korea using weapons and not having enough money in the future were among the other fears in the top 10. Environmental issues never made it into the top 10 in previous surveys.

But what really connects most of these fears together? The news, apparently.

" Many of the top 10 fears this year can be directly correlated to the top media stories of the past year." Avoid seeing crises as insurmountable problems, the American Psychological Association advises – try focusing on how things might be better in the future.

"We are beginning to see trends that people tend to fear what they are exposed to in the media," Christopher Bader, a sociology professor at Chapman University who led the research, said in a statement. "Many of the top 10 fears this year can be directly correlated to the top media stories of the past year." Researchers conducted the survey online and included more than 1,200 participants across the U.S., giving participants a list of about 79 different fears to choose from across myriad topics. They collected the data from June 28 to July 7.

The survey also found that Americans think both both Islamic extremists and white supremacists are threats to national security. More than half of Americans – 51 percent – think white supremacists make up such a threat, while three out of five Americans say they are afraid or very afraid Islamic extremists/Jihadists are such a threat.
