Care of the Cold and Preventing TB (via katinthecupboard)

A well-bred person knows that coughing in another person’s face is poor etiquette and poor hygiene. ….avoid those people! Use a handkerchief. Testing dairy cows for bovine tuberculosis is a safety precaution. Pasteurization is even more important in the battle against TB. Since 1900 the death rate from TB in the US has been cut in half (as of 1937). Surely we may hope for another big reduction with the next generation!”
