    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 & Human Services)

    Now think about this:

    Guns: 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.


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

    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, I have withheld the statistics on
    lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical
    attention.)

    Great post, Shiz.

    I've seen this before and it's a great item to keep before us every once in a while. It also has a fantastic message.

    Also, even though I are one, however, not of that ilk, I'd truly like to see the statistics re: the lawyers that are killing off this country as fast and as hard as they can.

    This is serious business, not something at which to laugh.
