The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for tuberculosis.

The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease. WGCL reports that a health department spokeswoman said there is a possibility that both Occupy Atlanta protesters and the homeless people in the shelter may still be at risk since tuberculosis is contracted through air contact.

All it would take is one recent immigrant from a third world country who is infected with TB to be in that "camp" and you can turn out the lights. With the amazing sanitary conditions at those places, TB could spread like wildfire in Texas.

They should break every camp up that is in the country, as God only knows what other communicable diseases will be spread. Get the CDC to mandate it, and bring in the National Guard, firehoses, and dogs.

Well, maybe. I realize that water is a precious resource, and, having 4 dogs, I qualify as a dog lover......and since I'd hate to waste any water on these folks, OR expose any of my canine friends to a communicable disease....they "could" just shoot 'em all and doze the bodies into a hole and cover them up. All in the name of stopping the spread of TB, of course. :wink:

All it takes is a few semislave labor being brought in/hired by the corporates and wealthy- that they use for their housekeepers, nannies and poolboys- and pretty soon its spread everywhere...

It’s a growing crisis suffered by parents of kids in classrooms, work places and food retail outlets. How and why is this disease that was ‘extinguished’ in the United States by the mid 1990’s back?

According to the Center for Disease Control, 14,871 new cases of active TB in the United States

“…occurred among people born abroad to non-U.S. born parents.” What do they have in common? They immigrated to America. Tuberculosis rears its ugly head with the advance of illegal immigrants massing across the United States.

How did they get past health officials at the borders? According to U.S. Border Patrol officials, over 4,000 illegal aliens make successful bids to cross America’s borders nightly in Arizona alone. Once inside the U.S., they move into the general population where they spread tuberculosis to American citizens. How many infected illegal aliens breached America’s borders in the past five years? According to a report by Dr. Kevin Patterson in the March issue of Mother Jones News, “Patient Predator,” an estimated 16,000 cases of MDR mycobacterium tuberculosis traveled over U.S. borders from Mexico in the past five years. This new ‘multi-drug resistant’ TB, at this point, is incurable. Worldwide, tuberculosis kills two million people annually.
--------------------
Quite simply, it’s spreading like a dandelion dropping seeds into the wind.
Why should Americans be concerned? First, over one million illegal alien children attend K-12 schools across the United States. They are the sons and daughters of parents who escaped disease testing at our nation’s borders. Anyone of them could be among the 16,000 new cases of TB within our borders. What do all illegal aliens have in common? They do not want to be deported so they avoid checking into health clinics.

According to Dr. Lee Reichman in his book “TIMEBOMB: GLOBAL EPIDEMIC OF MULTI DRUG RESISTANT DISEASES,” each infected person may infect 10 to 50 other persons depending on his/her presence in public. Where do illegal aliens find work? Take a guess! It means any healthy American could eat at a fast food restaurant, go to a movie, stand in line at a grocery store or attend school—and contract tuberculosis. You’re a cough or sneeze away from infection by someone standing in line with you.

Adding to the calamity, America’s porous borders allow a million illegal and untested migrants into the United States annually. It portends a growing, silent and pervasive epidemic that will take years before fully realized as ‘live’ and latent carriers may pass the disease to anyone near them when they cough, sneeze or touch foods Americans eat.

Altho there are many different strains- and transmitted several different ways-- a few years ago the records released from the USDA showed almost all cattle caught at slaughter that had TB originated from Mexico...The reason some states will not allow Mexican origin cattle to be imported into their states....


TB found in SD

Hutchinson Co. herd hit by bovine tuberculosis

By: News release, SD Animal Industry Board

Bovine tuberculosis has been found in a South Dakota beef herd. State animal health officials confirmed Wednesday that a Hutchinson County herd is affected.


The herd is under quarantine and an investigation is ongoing to determine if other herds are affected.


“We are working closely with the herd owner, veterinarians and USDA officials,” said State Veterinarian Dustin Oedekoven. “Our immediate goal is to determine if additional herds are affected and to limit the economic impact of this disease on South Dakota’s cattle industry.”


Additional testing will be conducted in herds associated with the affected herd, he said. Oedekoven said there is no threat to food safety as a result of this finding.


South Dakota has been recognized as a TB-Accredited-Free state by USDA since 1982. The state was allowed to keep that status despite finding two affected herds in January 2010.


The herds identified in 2010 were depopulated and an extensive investigation was completed
