DID YOU KNOW…
The World Health Organization estimates that 1/3 of the world’s population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, one strain of bacteria that causes the disease Tuberculosis? ONE THIRD! That’s around 2 billion people! That’s crazy!
However, in healthy individuals with strong immune systems the body does a good job combating the bacteria, so the bacteria never reproduces or becomes contagious. You never show symptoms either. Only about 5-10% of people with healthy immune systems develop symptoms.
It’s when your immune system collapses that you become vulnerable (such as when you contract HIV).
