Happy Holidays

24 12 2006

Happy Holidays. To apologize for the infrequent posts this holiday season, here are some statistics for you to ponder over the holidays:

In 2004, the life expectancy for someone born in the United States was 75 years. In Swaziland it was 36 years.
In 2003, for every 100,000 people, 14,000 people died of HIV/AIDS in the United States. In South Africa, that number jumps to 370,000 – I’m not even sure how that’s possible.

these statistics can be viewed at the World Health Organization’s website – http://www.who.int
