"Cracked teeth" and fewer shark attacks

On March 27, 2009 This American Life had a program on the effects of the recession. Entitled Scenes from a Recession, the authors claimed that one of the effects of the recession is a higher incidence of cracked and damaged teeth due, no doubt, to the stress and teeth grinding that occurs as a result of the bad economic times. Similarly, the recession has also apparently resulted in a decline in shark attacks. This time due to a reduction in luxury and /or adventure-style vacations.

If you are looking for information on the bad economic times you might want to consider some of the news sites:

BBC Global Financial Crisis

Financial Times In Depth: Global Financial Crisis

Consider also high quality online information from Congressional Quarterly Press.

CQ Researcher offered this overview of the credit meltdown.
