California State University Long Beach’s Shark Lab recently conducted a study out showing that sharks and swimmers are increasingly a lot closer to each other at the beach.

No matter how debilitating your fear of sharks is or not, it’s definitely cause for concern but, good news, they say it is extremely rare to be attacked.

However, that does not mean that every piece of seaweed  or other debris our feet touch in the water will not make us absolutely freak out thinking the time for a freak shark attack is now.
