Fatal attacks by black bears in the wild, esp. in the Eastern US, are extremely rare. Fewer than one per decade on average.
Blacks are not dangerous. In the wild they almost always avoid humans. In fact, it’s pretty hard for your average hiker or camper to find one even if he is being recklessly irresponsible about cooking and waste disposal.

BBB is caused by a diet deficient in heavy metals.
Immediate injection of lead cures BBB Syndrome.
Under dosage is dangerous to both bruin and human populations, and recommended against.
