Doctors kill 2,450% more Americans than all gun-related deaths combined
Your doctor is FAR more likely to kill you than an armed criminal It's true: You are 64 times more likely to be killed by your doctor than by someone else wielding a gun.
That's because 19,766 of the total 31,940 gun deaths in the USA (in the year 2011) were suicides. So the actual number of deaths from other people shooting you is only 12,174.
Doctors, comparatively, kill 783,936 people each year, which is 64 times higher than 12,174. Doctors shoot you not with bullets, but with vaccines, chemotherapy and pharmaceuticals... all of which turn out to be FAR more deadly than guns.
