Most Dangerous Sports
While scuba diving has become a common term, most do not know that Scuba is actually an acronym for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus, which is used by a diver for breathing underwater. While it sounds wonderful, but it comes with its perils. If the ascent from a dive is too fast, it can cause decompression illnesses, which include bends, and can cause spinal cord, brain and lung failure. There is also the fear of being attacked by stray sharks or other underwater creatures.
