Have you ever wondered how quickly people are born or die in the world?

In the time it took for you to read that sentence, several people were born and several died.

There's a website out in the internet called Worldometers. It's a focus on the real-time numbers of people being born, people dying, and lots of other facts and figures.

Some of the sad figures being tracked are things like: the number of people who've died from cancer this year (over 5 million); deaths caused by smoking this year (over 3 million); and, people who died of hunger TODAY (over 5,000).

You can check out some of these eye-popping statistics here.
