    Why doctors are more dangerous than guns

    While I do not always agree with the Ranger, he does sometimes have some good stuff, and I do agree with him on this one.
    In fact I have posted it on my own blog about a week ago. Do you think doctors are more dangerous? I was convinced of it even before his article came out.

    A little while back I read an interesting piece that said doctors and hospitals together account for approximately 190,000 accidental, negligent, or unexpected deaths due to error per year. Perhaps we can now refer to them as "Assault Doctors".
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Oh God, I'm in a heap of trouble. This October, I go in for a total knee replacement. Hope they don't do a sex change by mistake. What would that make my wife??

    Well.....interesting. If doctors are as dangerous as stated.....don't go to them.....and improve your chances of survival by 6200%.

    Prescription medicine related deaths......cite please. (How many are caused by the 'pill taker' and not the 'pill giver'?)

    In the context of raw numbers, don't drive to the doctor. You may not make your appointment, get killed while at the doctor, or achieve room temperature on the way home from the doctor.....according to the 'Ranger'.

    As far as the 'Ranger' is concerned.....he preys on the paranoid prepper.

    IF you'd have paid attention to the video you would have seen a clear cite of the source. JAMA Vol 284, No 4, July 26 2000.

    Use a number such as 0.32% instead.
    ....overall incidence of fatal ADRs was 0.32% (of hospital patients).

    http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article....ticleid=187436
    The link takes you to the actual study where the 106,000 can be found. There a different story is told regarding that number and the accuracy of that number.

    Natural News is fear mongering and guilty of trying to create a issue where no issue exists. The Health Ranger's "helping" is not helping.

    Some accept his premise, I do not, and never did.

    If you believe that you are more likely to be killed by your/a doctor than as the result of a gun.....don't go to the doctor.
