Here are a few interesting facts which you may or may not want to know …
It actually took humans until the year 1800 for the world’s population to reach the 1 billion mark. Now it only takes about 13 years to add another billion which is about 80 million per year.
In 1951, 1 in 5 children died before the age of 5. Today, 93% survive.
Young people make up 43% of the world’s population … I wonder if they all worry their parents!
The rate of growth of people age 60 or older is growing at twice the rate of the rest of the world’s population. By 2040, nearly 1 in 4 people will be 60 plus.
Cripes .. I’ll be almost 90 by then.
So … if I have written to you … THINK ON ! You have been very carefully and lovingly (well, I like to think so) selected from a choice of 7 billion folk so it’s somewhat of a miracle that I wrote to you at all. Please don’t think too much about this as your head may well implode ! ALL THE BEST.
