When checking out Mick Dumdell’s latest article, I saw that another American Doctor is an animal murderer. This one is Jan Casimir Seski of Murrysville, Pennsylvania, and he has been accused of an illegal lion hunt with a bow and arrow at the very same park as Walter Palmer, Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. I found the story over at Jonathan Turley’s website. Here is the link, but I warn you, there are some disturbing pictures:
I wonder if American Doctors are just tired of killing human beings, and need something different to kill? Here are some interesting numbers:
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.
This is especially amazing, given that there are just under 700,000 doctors in America, while there are roughly about 80 million gun owners in America.
How do 700,000 doctors manage to kill 783,936 people each year (that’s over one death per doctor), while 80 million gun owners kill only 31,940? Because owning a gun is orders of magnitude safer than “practicing” medicine!
Check out the following infographic, which can also be viewed in a higher resolution at:
Because all those deaths overseen by doctors and pharmacists are making billions of dollars for the corrupt, criminally-run pharmaceutical industry and the for-profit, corporate-driven health care complex.
I don’t know for sure if this is the case, but I think it does require some serious consideration.
