Do you know the current world population?
Do you know how many bicycles are produced this year worldwide?
Do you know how many newspapers are circulated this year worldwide?
Do you know how many miles Earth has traveled in space within our solar system this year?
Do you know how many people have no access to safe drinking water?
Do you know how many people die because of smoking?

Well, I’m not conducting any quiz competition here. Here is an interesting and informative website http://www.worldometers.info/. It not only answers the above questions but also gives some more statistics. Some of the statistics are worth pondering. Though the figures are not 100% accurate, they (website team) make sure that they give as accurate number as possible based on the reputed and reliable sources available all over the world. Also take a look at another website http://www.stopthehunger.com/. Whenever we waste some food, we need to check this website to see how many people are dying because of hunger.
