Facts to Consider

Thanks, Will, for emailing the following to me!

Doctors


(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. 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 U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Now think about this:

Guns


(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.


(Yes, that's 80 million)


(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 .0000188


Statistics courtesy of FBI


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>




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


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,

BUT

Almost everyone has at least one doctor.

This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


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, we withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

Don't worry, the government wants to ban both thanks to "0"care and gun control.

Hi MR AOW.
Thanks for the mention, actually if you think about it, it's pretty frightening.

Clinics are scary but hospitals are downright dangerous. There's a lot more doctors in hospitals. I'll be glad when they stop practicing medicine and go to the next phase, proficiency.
