Some Interesting Statistics

(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 look at 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!

I've seen this before, but it always makes me laugh. Especially now, when I've seen a lot of doctors, one of whom gave me a medication which caused some problems.

Obviously, the solution, as you said, is to ban doctors!

This is too funny. But at the same time carries a good point. Thanks for sharing!
