The Science of Shark Attacks and How to Avoid Them
Despite two highly publicized shark attacks last month along the U.S. coast, at least one scientist says it’s safe to go back in the water.
In fact, he points out that you’re actually in more danger on the way to the beach.
“There are millions of people in the water at any given moment of the day,” said John McEachran of Texas A&M University. “When you consider all of the people in the water at the same time, the number of shark attacks is very, very remote.”
