    Facts to Ponder??

    FACTS TO PONDER:


    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is700,000.

    (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 Human Services.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Now think about this:

    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 number of accidental deaths

    per gun owner
    is
    .000188.
    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."

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,
    BUT

    ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Please alert your friends

    to thisalarming threat.

    We must ban doctors

    before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    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!

    Larry the Cable Guy said it best "If your going to blame guns for killing people, then I'm going to blame pencils for my mispelled words."
