Modern medicine is the number one cause of death in the US.
A friend of mine sent this in an email - I hope you can appreciate the humor.
(A) The number of physicians in the US 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 the US Dept of Health and Human Services.
(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 is 1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000019
Statistics courtesy of the 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.
Ha ha ha - No, I didn't write it.
Perhaps we should confiscate all prescription pads in the interest of world peace.
