OMG stop breathing now!!!
Definitely need to ban fords that looks like commodores.
Smoking definitely needs to go (although the govt are already working on that one)
I think we need to ban hearts and any internal organs also, they often kill us.
Socks are dangerous, you could slip whilst walking around the house.
These excertpts show the emtionally charged language "A new breed of dog would start to be found in attacks and a new unscrupulous media
would stir this into a storm of hysteria. Not only would the newspapers emphasize breed above all other elements in dog attacks, but the media would print outrageous rumors, myths and theories about anatomy and temperament that earlier generations of reporters had the good sense and professionalism to leave in the children’s playgrounds.
But no article could compete with the blatant fear mongering and horrendous portrayal of the Pit bull that Time magazine ran this same month. In an apparent attempt to top all
others in shocking the public into reading their Pit bull article, they ran the headline “Time Bomb on Legs.”
Horror author Stephen King could not have created a more frightening monster than this portrayal of the Pit bull."
Of course the book contains pages and pages of Human Stupidity. That this publication appears n a website set up by Pitbull apollogist is no surprise.
How about some independent data? That would be from someone without a vested interest in the breed?

The combination of pit bulls, rottweilers, presa canarios, and their mixes:
80% of attacks that induce bodily harm
70% of attacks to children
83% of attack to adults
69% of attacks that result in fatalities
75% that result in maiming
Even if the pit bull category was "split three ways," attacks by pit bulls and their closest relatives would still outnumber attacks by any other breed.
Pit bulls are noteworthy for attacking adults almost as frequently as children, a characteristic not shared by any other breed.
