Thoughts to Ponder

FACTS TO PONDER :

Physicians:

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

(Calculation) 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.
(Yes, that's 80 million..)

(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is
1,500.

(Calculation) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.

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.

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