    Lets ban doctors next!!

    I just received this email and thought I'd pass it along. Forgive me if you've already seen it.

    Subject: 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.

    Handguns: Now think about this:
    (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that’s 80 million)
    ( B) 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.”….

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

    Note: 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.

    I love this one. Someone posted it on every bulletin board at the Medical School I worked at a few years ago. Doctor teachers and their students have no sense of humor about this stuff. Truth hurts, I guess.
