Factfulness | Hans Rosling

Editor’s comment: See this month’s blog post.      

Favorite excerpt:“Like tomatoes, human beings need water to survive.  But if you drink six liters at once, you will die.  The same goes for sugar, fat and medicines.  Actually, everything we need to survive is lethal in high dosage.  Too much stress is bad, but the right amount improves performance.  Self-confidence has its optimal dosage.  The intake of dramatic news from the rest of the world has its optimal dosage too.”
