#DidYouKnow: Sharks are more likely to kill men

Grey Reef Shark and Blacktip Reef Shark

A study has shown that men are nine times more likely to be attacked and killed by sharks than women.

Sharks are nine times more likely to kill men than women.

According to the study by Professor Daryl McPhee from the Bond University in Queensland, the sexist predators have increased their attacks in Australian waters three fold over the last 30 years, with 84% of all unprovoked attacks targeting males and 89% of all fatal shark attacks involving men.

However, Professor McPhee insists there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for the figures.

She said: “Potentially men spend more time in the water, and are more risk-prone.”

    I would like to know if there is now VAT on chicken feed and dairy mix how can the price of eggs, chicken and milk stay the same. Producers have to recover their costs and almost all inputs to their businesses are now rated at 16% VAT including electricity. Inflation of prices is inevitable.

    In the USA (i heard this happens in the United Kingdom, too) we have many people says ‘we will pursue unscrupulous traders’ but instead the laws actually help the unscrupulous traders.
    Better make the law criminals with High Fines based on the actual dollar amount.
