INTERESTING STATISTICS

a. The number of physicians in the U. S. is 700,000. b. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000. c. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

(Statistics courtesy of U. S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)

Now think about this:

a. The number of gun owners in the U. S. 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.

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!!!

HEH HEH, that's good Mike. I need to show this to the wife, she distrusts doctors something fierce. I like to tell people "If your doctor is so good, then why are all his patients sick?"

Those are great statistics. I wonder how many deliberate deaths are attributed to doctors while how many deliberate deaths are attributed to gun owners.

Very good Mike. Excellent stats. Truely shows that alot of Americans are a bit confused on what they should ban and what they shouldn't.
