Aren't statistics wonderful?
(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. The above is just a fact.
Now, The Above Meant Nothing Until I Did The Below
(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. The above is also fact.
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 control.
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!
