This disease is second only to HIV/AIDS in the numbers of adults it kills worldwide every year.
The World Health Organization estimates that two billion people—one-third of our planet’s population—are infected with the bacteria that cause TB. Of these 2 billion, 10% are expected to become sick, with half dying if treatment is not found. TB has become resistant to multiple drugs, and medical professionals are worried it will become ‘practically untreatable.’ Countries like South Africa, Thailand, Cambodia, Swaziland, and numerous others have seen millions die. Statistics say one person dies every 20 seconds from TB.

It is estimated that up to 30% of some bacteria have developed new biochemical defenses.” Continue reading
