If Afghanistan were my home

If Afghanistan were my home | Kite Runner- english project | Scoop.it
I would be 97.5% less likely to have HIV/AIDS. This is most likely because of the strict religion in Afghanistan that prohibits premarital sex. I would consume 99.74% less oil. This is probably because of two extremes- that we, in Canada, use much more oil than we should or need, and many people in Afghanistan hardily use any at all. I would die 36.64 years earlier, because of the various diseases and the lack of health care, compared to Canada. I would have 3.7 times more children.
