Important Statistics

The follwing was emailed to me from my friend, Chan:

Doctors:
(A) The number of Doctors in the U.S. is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
(C) The percentage of accidental deaths by physicians 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 percentage of accidental deaths by gun owners 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; 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 have withheld statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention...
