The Down East Journal (05/20/16)

May 23, 2016

If 2015 was the "summer of the shark" in eastern North Carolina, what about 2016?  A series of rare shark attacks along the North Carolina coast last summer may make you reticent to take a dip.  This week on the Down East Journal, we dispel shark myths with local researchers who study them.  Plus, it's mosquito season and with it, new fears of Zika.  But a new study links pesticides to autism.  We speak to the pediatrician who lead the study.  And, we tell you what's on tap for the Beaufort Music Festival this weekend.
