I know we mainly discuss theology but...
- I was going thru some old emails and came across this... thought it
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
a.) The number of physicians in the United
States is 700,000.
b.) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per
year is 120,000.
c.) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171
(US Dept. of Health & Human Services)
So, think about this:
a.) The number of gun owners in the US is
80,000,000 (yes, eighty-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 0.0000188
Statistically, doctors are about 9,000 times
more dangerous than gun owners.
FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but almost
everyone has a doctor. Alert your friends
to this threat. We must ban doctors before
this gets out of hand.
As a public health measure I have withheld the
statistics on lawyers for fear that the shock
could cause people to seek medical attention!
