Errant medical treatment kills 2,450% more Americans than all gun-related deaths combined. WHERE are the news cameras??
Of course we all agree that the Orlando nightclub attack is a tragedy. But those of wiser mind can put any given tragedy into proper perspective.
We can apply logic to death statistics, and part of that logic is asking, “Compared to what?” Because if we compare deaths by firearms to other causes of death, the picture becomes far different than the fear-mongering scenarios we see on television. In fact, as the following graphic shows, medical care kills 2,450% more Americans than all gun-related deaths combined.
Doctors – and the treatment regimens they direct – are FAR more likely to kill you than an armed terrorist
It’s true: You are 64 times more likely to be killed by your “healthcare” than by someone else wielding a gun. The actual number of gun deaths from other people shooting you is 12,228.
Comparatively, healthcare gone wrong kills an estimated 700,00 citizens each year, which is 64 times higher than 12,174. Medical treatment shoots you too -not with guns – but with vaccines, dangerous pharmaceuticals an more than 1,000,000 unnecessary surgeries each year – all of which turn out to be FAR more deadly than guns.
Gun Control? Where is the call for “doctor control?”
In spite of the statistical fact that you are overall 25 times more likely to be killed by your doctor than by a gun – and it’s actually far worse if you spend more time around doctors than you do gang members – there is absolutely no call in the media for “physician control.”
There is NO talk about reducing the number of people who are medicated every day in this country.
There’s NO mention of the jaw-dropping fact that surgical procedures do not need to be proven safe and effective before being tried on patients. Surgery in America is, in effect, a grand experiment often conducted with little or no scientific support.
There’s NO real discussion of the fact that psychiatric drugs probably cause many shooting incidents, as we’ve seen over and again across the U.S.
And that, America, is at least as shameful – and FAR more dangerous – than the potential of a mass shooting by a savage.
