Excerpt from All About Sharks: A Complete Guide to the World’s Most Misunderstood Predator (Nov. 2017):
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.
