World Tuberculosis Day

Today was also World TB Day, a disease once called consumption that is highly contagious, and more common that we might think even in the developed world. About 250 people die each year in the United States from tuberculosis.

Florence Nightingale, is just one famous person who died of TB - rather ironic given that she was a the founder of modern nursing.
