scary stats

From the US DEPT. of Health & Human Services


1.The number of physicians in the USA is 700,000.
2.Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year is
3.Accidential deaths per physician is 0.171.

Gun Owners:

1.The number of gun owners in the USA is 80,000,000.
2.The number of accidental gun deaths per year is 1,500.
3.The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is

Statistically,Doctors are aproximately 9,000 times more
dangerous than gun owners.


Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
We must ban doctors before this gets out of hand.

As a public health measure,I have withheld the
statistics on lawyers for the fear that the shock could
cause people to seek medical attention!!
I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, stranger, I am ungrateful to these teachers.

Was it Mark Twain who said "There are lies, damn lies, and statistics"?

Pretty funny, though:-)

Ban Doctors? Let's see some comparison stats of the number of lives saved by guns and the number of lives saved by Doctors, we're only getting one side of the story. It is a pretty funny way to present stats though....
Did you guys know that 74% of all statistics are made up on the spot???

RM, only 74%? LOL.
I heard that left-handed doctors cause more accidental deaths per year than right-handed doctors 3:1.

They wear masks for a reason heh heh. Now just how many of those doctors used guns to kill people? I myself am more afraid of some doctor pulling on his rubber gloves while he instructs you to bend over than any trigger happy gun toting redneck, but thats just me LOL Mark
