In the early 1950s life expectancy in developing countries like China and India was about 40 years, and by 2005 it was 74 years in many developing countries like China. This is the greatest increase in life expectancy in such a short period that has ever happened in human history, an increase in life expectancy of more than .50 years, every year, for fifty years!
