I read this on Bloomberg and have shares the highlights here. Good job everyone!
- We are living longer
- We are healthier
- Child mortality is down
- Poverty is decreasing
- Literacy is increasing
- We’re killing each other less
- In 2017, 96.1% of the population survived their first five years, compared to 56.7% in 1800
- Our body temperatures are dropping due to a steady decrease in inflammation. In short, we’re getting healthier – and living longer
We’ve got real problems to solve out there like global warming, killer viruses, heart disease, texting & driving, and saving the koalas. But it’s also good to remember the wins.
