Living People Outnumber the Dead : NOT !

This article in Scientific American states that " The Earth may seem crowded with 6.5 billion people but it would take 100 billion living to come close to outnumbering all who have ever live".
Mankind (homo sapiens) has been around for 50,000 years and the number of people who have died far far exceeds the now living inspite of the improvements in medication and the increases in average lifespan.
