Medical → Severe burns
There are approximately 2.4 million burn injuries that are reported each year in the United States. Out of this amount there are about 650,000 burn injuries that are treated by medical professionals and another 75,000 burn patients that are hospitalized and this includes 20,000 burn victims that have severe burns over approximately 25% of their body. From this number there are between 8,000 and 12,000 burn injury patients that will die from their injuries. There are nearly 1 million burn victims that will have permanent disabilities.

|Setting The Record Straight|
|This pic is from a children's burns hospital in Texas, and |
has nothing to do with Tokaimura, Chernobyl, or
probably nuclear radiation at all. The story of what
happened to this kid doesn't appear to have been
publicized (maybe a gas canister exploded near his right
leg). Full-thickness burns require early excision of the
burned skin. Get burned on your entire body, this is
what you'll look like before skin grafts are applied.
|This is not from accidental burns. This patient was a victim of a nuclear plant explosion in Japan.|

coyote was alive. And this pheasant was alive.
NOPE! They're not. They've been taxidermized by
Ojai Valley taxidermy. I specialize in the most lifelike
animals anywhere. Period.
