    Is this one of those new alternative facts I have been hearing so much about?
    Idk, one of the medical pages I like on facebook posted it recently and I found it quite amazing. People are so scared of dog bites, while the dog owner poses more risk than the animal lol

    probably more, but im not sure how many deaths from dog bites are related to infection and how many to the physical damage (aka extensive bites, too much blood loss etc)

    It's more along the lines of "the human mouth has more bacteria than any other mouth, therefore you're more likely to be infected by a human bite, than an animal bite".

    Sodium atoms do not "want" to lose an electron; if anything, they "want" to gain an electron.

    I find that in itself hard to believe, and also question the pathogenicity of our oral bacteria relative to other animals, especially carnivores. Surely the bite of a lion/bear/monitor lizard should be more "dangerous"
