    Accident Statistics:

    Doctors:

    (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.

    (Yes, that's 80 million ..)

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    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 EAST 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.
