This is too important not to share with everyone. Please pass it along as a public service.
========================================================
(A) The number of doctors in the U.S. is 700,000.

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

(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%.

Statistics courtesy of the U.S. Dept. of Health &Human Services

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 0.001875% .

Statistics courtesy of the 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 havewithheld statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.
