Baby Peem Lalida photoAs I’m reading and ferreting around the internet, I often come across interesting (if not sometimes disturbing) facts. So today I’m introducing a new, regular feature – the ThinkingShift Fast Fact – short statistical or interesting information on many and varied topics.

I’m starting off with a sobering but important Fast Fact: The lack of pure water is the greatest killer on the globe. Four children die each minute from illness caused by a lack of drinking water. That’s the equivalent of 30 fully loaded Boeing 747s crashing every day – far more than are killed by Aids and malaria combined.
