More Cell Phones Than Toilets In World

3-22 Cellphones

The United Nations’ sanitation campaign saying the world has far more cell phones… than toilets.

FOX News Radio’s Steve Knight reports:

Audio clip:

The numbers are immense.

The world’s population is about seven billion. Six billion have mobile phones. But, only four-and-a-half billion have access to toilets or latrines.

The UN says the numbers reveal a silent disaster that results in sickness and death.

Authorities say quick remedies are needed to meet the UN’s goal of cutting the number of people who don’t have access to proper sanitation facilities in half by the end of 2015.
