Nope, I'll let the facts speak for themselves. but if you want cut and paste here is some<quoted text>
You take a raw cia statistic and have no idea of the applicable factors so I explain it and you r lost again.
Here's a clue:
Comparing infant mortality rates between countries is fraught with uncertaintyafter all, it's hard to argue that every country's figures are reliable.
But it's still worth asking what more we can do to stop babies from dying. Defined as death before one year of age, infant mortality frequently gets framed in the United States as a problem of insufficient health-care funding. In December, for example, a New York Times column blamed it on the lack of a single-payer health insurer.
However, a closer look reveals the counterintuitive possibility that high infant mortality in the United States might be the unintended side effect of increased spending on medical care.
Infant deaths in poor nations are roughly six times more common than in developed areas and result mainly from easily treated infections like diarrhea in the first few months.
By contrast, the majority of deaths in developed countries result from extreme prematurity or birth defects that kill a newborn in the first few days or weeks of life.
According to a 2002 analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least a third of all infant mortality in the United States arises from complications of prematurity; other studies assert the figure is closer to half.
Thusat the risk of oversimplifyinginfant mortality in the United States principally is a problem of premature birth, which today complicates just over one in 10 pregnancies.

Why can't you add anything to the discussion?
(CNN)-- An estimated 2 million babies die within their first 24 hours each year worldwide and the United States has the second worst newborn mortality rate in the developed world, according to a new report.
