Did you know?

  • TB is also known as consumption or the white plague.
  • In the 1800s, tuberculosis was known as “the captain of all men of death.” Does that even make sense?
  • Tuberculosis was keen on afflicting authors, including: John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson, Emily Bronte, and Edgar Allen Poe.

  1. TB was prevalent when I was growing up. A neighbor was sent to a sanitarium and the whole street was abuzz. As I understand whenever a disease, once virtually eliminated comes back it is due to folks no longer doing what they did. People can be pretty dumb.
