World Population Ratios

World Population Ratios

(NOTE: This is traveling the Internet, wrongly attributed to a certain professor at a West Coast university medical school, who asked that I delete his name. If anybody finds the CORRECT source, I would appreciate hearing from you so I can properly credit it. Until then, I HOPE the figures are correct.)
