Default doctors are dangerous

(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!

If a Conservative doesn't want to go to a doctor, HE DOESN'T !
If a Liberal doesn't want to go to a doctor, he want's the doctor to COME TO HIM !

Disclosure;('HIM' being a gender non specific name for 'human' of either gender) We/us/I must be politically correct when speaking of Liberals....... :roll: :roll: :roll:

Glad for the doctor that saved my life when I had my heart atack. Or save my grand kids life when she almost died. I would rather have them.
