They sit on them?

It's not the USA btw, it's Somalia, at 18 first-day deaths per 1000 live births, vs 2.6 (so that's 3) in the USA. Don't get me started on stats.

Why is this?
Two reasons:-

1 As the overall rate of infant mortality is very low in the west it is disproportionately affected by small groups with very high infant mortality such as drug abusers

2 The disparity in the availability of emergency and routine health care for those without medical insurance. The poor get very poor antenatal care but are born in first rate hospitals.

He said industrialised world. Somalia's an anarchist pirate hellhole, I'd hardly call it industrialised.

Considering over 70% of Americans are overweight, that might well have something to do with the mortality rate. I don't know; I only got a B in my GCSE statistics.
