Worldwide, more people own a phone than a toilet

As crazy as it may sound, the results of a worldwide survey released by the UN in 2013 revealed that 6 out of the estimated 7 billion people in the world have access to mobile phones, and far fewer , only 4.5 billion people — have access to working toilets. Of the 2.5 billion who don’t have proper sanitation, 1.1 billion defecate in the open, according to the study.
