醫生比擁槍者危險?!

今晨接到一封電子郵件:

Doctors vs. Gun Owners
Doctors
(A)   The number of physicians in the U.S. – 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 and Human Services. —————-
Now think about this:
Guns
(A)   The number of gun owners in the U.S. – 80,000,000.        (Yes, that’s 80 million)
(B)   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!

直覺是, 這是個挖苦的, 茶餘飯後的消遣. 但仔細想想, 這裡面的確是有些客觀事實的.
於是, 找到以下這個政府的網站: Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, U.S. Department of Health Services.  其中, 我們可以看到一些比較醫療錯誤, 乳癌, AIDS, 車禍, 等等, 導致的死亡的統計. 如果您有興趣, 也可看看, 1999年11月發表的那份被美國醫界認為是 Legendary paper 的研究報告這使得我們不得不反思現代的醫療系統到底出了什麼問題? 中醫與經方應該扮演什麼角色?
