I saw this article on Grazing the Net and thought it looked interesting.
|Inspired by news of summer shark attacks, this enterprising Washington Post reporter delved into the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s statistical database on causes of death to determine which animal is really most likely to kill you this summer. Sharks were pretty low on the list, although the perilous bovine did rise to account for 20 American deaths annually. Still, dying from encountering the live version is 500 times more likely than dying from an antibiotic-resistant infection caused by eating a burger made from it.
