International7,000,000,000 people!

November 21, 2011

On Oct. 29, 2011, the world’s population reached 7 billion. It happened so fast. In 1930, it was only 2 billion. Modern medicine is one reason. People are living longer.

One-third of the world’s people live in China and India. China has 1.3 billion people, and India has 1.2 billion. The third-largest country is the United States, but only 313 million people live here.

Now the earth is very crowded. Seven billion people cause trouble for the world’s plants, animals, land and water. Is there any medicine for Mother Earth?
