Worried about a shark attack?

You should be more afraid of bacon giving you a heart attack or getting in a car wreck, at least in the U.S. Recent stats on risks to Americans prove a shark attack is hardly worth fretting over:

  • Heart disease 20% (1 in 5)
  • Car accident 1% (1 in 100)
  • Train wreck 0.0007% (1 in 150,000)
  • Shark attack 0.0000003% (1 in 3 million)

Don’t worry. Calm down and swim on.
