Why Your Doctor is More Dangerous Than Guns

     Some perspective:  medical errors--physician mistakes, "adverse reactions" to FDA-approved drugs, hospital-induced illnesses, unnecessary or botched surgeries, etc.-- cause 800,000 deaths per year.
     Put it this way: the number of deaths caused by the American medical system is the equivalent of six 747 jumbo jets falling out of the sky every day. On average, an American is 62 times more likely to be killed by a doctor than by a firearm.  That's right: we have a 6,200% greater chance of being killed by the medical system than by a maniac with a gun.
