Have you ever considered that the greatest human achievement has been the doubling of our lifespan?

On one of the podcasts I listen to the speaker reminded me that less than a hundred years ago, the average lifespan was 35 years old.

That one in three humans never reached the age of 18.

That parents usually buried their children.

The speaker attributed the miracle of time primarily to 2 things:

The division of a water system into a disinfected potable water stream and a separate waste stream and the pasteurization of milk.

The economy and riches of the nation had little to do with it as these 2 changes came about during the Great Depression.

Pretty amazing.

Until next time, stay healthy.
