We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming to Bring You This Breaking News

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.
