~ Tuberculosis is Most Widespread Disease ~
Has Many Forms - Consumption, The Germs of Which are in the Spittle, The Most Common.
Tuberculosis is the most widespread of all dangerous diseases. Every year it causes upward of 200,000 deaths in the
Tuberculosis may affect and part of the body, according to Dr. M. P. RAVENEI of the department of preventive medicine of the
The affection which we used to call scrofula, manifested by enlarged glands about the angle of the jaw, is also tuberculosis.
Consumption is not only the most common form of the disease but is also the form which is most contagious. In it the lung breaks down in to abscesses. These abscesses open into the nearest bronchial tubes and the germ are thrown out in the spit which the patient raises. Every twenty-four hours a well advanced case of consumption throws out in the spit about three billion consumption germs. This is the reason why health officers are so seriously fighting the spitting habit. Spitting is not only a dirty habit, but a dangerous one.
Tuberculosis is common in milch cattle, and it has been thoroughly proven that many children are infected by drinking the milk from diseased cows. For this reason, it is important that all cows giving milk for human use should be free from the disease. This When carried out by a competent man is best done by a tuberculin test. The test is extremely accurate and detects the disease in a very early stage when it can not be found out by any other known means.
In human beings the disease is spread from one person to another through coughing sneezing and spitting. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that person suffering from consumption should cover the mouth or nose always when they cough or sneeze. This is best done by a paper handkerchief, which can be put into a bag and burned. The spit which they raise should also be burned. Excellent and cheap paper cups are made for this purpose. The educated and careful consumptive is not a danger to those around him, but where care is not taken, the disease is spread from one person to another in the household.
