    First off, Let me state that this is in no way intended to offend.

    Now that that is said. A friend e-mailed this to me and I just had to share.

    Doctors
    (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 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)
    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 this
    alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors

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

    Out of concern for the public at large,

    I withheld the statistics on

    LAWYERS

    for fear the shock would cause

    people to panic and seek medical attention.
