Stunning Facts

Postby » Tue Jul 17, 2007 10:32 am


(A) The number of physicians in the US is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171
Statistics courtesy of US Dept of Health & Human Services

Now think about this:
(A) The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188
Statistics courtesy of FBI

So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor!!

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand (out of concern for the public at large, the author of this article has withheld the statistics on lawyers, for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!!!)
