I don't remember exactly where I read this, because I've seen it more than once, but I do remember that this is a VERY misleading statistic, and that when you compare babies born with problems that ARE tracked, (I dunnoh', like born with pneumonia, or born with one of a dozen other 'common' birth 'problems', that the statistics get skewed WAY over in our favor, that babies born WITH PROBLEMS are WAY more likely to survive if they're born in this country, FAR AND AWAY better than any other place on Earth...so simply pointing to 'Generic Infant Mortality' is not in any way the way to truly look at the thing...
