    (This is something that a friend shared with me. I thought it was worth passing along.)

    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is
    (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:

    (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.'


    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


    for fear the shock would cause

    people to panic and seek medical attention!
