FSUCML Lecture Series- Sharks, Cancer, & Fake News

FSUCML Lecture Series- Sharks, Cancer, & Fake News

Free & Open To the Public. Refreshments available before talk  

For many years the promotion of shark cartilage as a cure for cancer has contributed to at least two significant deleterious outcomes: a dramatic and continuing decrease in shark populations around the world and the diversion of patients from effective cancer treatments. The primary justification for the use of cartilage is that sharks do not present with cancer.  However, sharks and related fishes have been documented to exhibit a variety of different cancers in different organs and tissues. The earliest known examples were reported in the late 1800’s.

To facilitate the use of reason as the basis of public and private decision-making, the evidence-based mechanisms of evaluation used daily by the scientific community should be added to the training of media and governmental professionals. Increased use of logical, collaborative discussion will be necessary to ensure a sustainable future for man and the biosphere.

Lionfish are nonnative invasive species that were introduced to the coastal waters of Florida over 30 years ago and have since successfully invaded the Caribbean Sea, western Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Often referred to as the worst marine invasion to date, lionfish have the potential to alter the population dynamics of our native marine communities, impacting the recreational and commercial fishing industries and overall economy of Florida. Join Us to learn about ways to get involved in lionfish removal efforts.
