List: Top Ten Causes of Death in Children in Developing Countries

Date: 2002

Source: World Health Organisation

Base: All Developing Countries as classed by the U.N.

Notes: How many of these deaths could be prevented if the developed world pulled its finger out, stopped the waste, corruption and obfuscation embodied in the European Union's CAP and that compromised organisation called the UN, wasn't diverted by the canard of global warming promoted by the luddite eco-doom mongers and truly embraced free trade? Most of them.
