Learn why tuberculosis, TB, is the world’s most infectious disease and how medical advancements are improving treatment.

In 2008, two 9,000-year old skeletons were found with their bones infected by an all too familiar bacterium. The ancient Greeks knew its effects as phthisis; the Incans called it chaky oncay; and today we call it tuberculosis, or TB. TB is still one of the world’s most infectious killers, causing more deaths than malaria or even HIV. How has it persisted for so long? Melvin Sanicas investigates.

I came for scientific knowledge, I left with Red Dead Redemption 2 spoilers.

(I know they don't count as such, as RDR2 came out almost a year ago. However, I haven't played it yet and I thought it was amusing to find such comments under a video that I regarded as videogames-free. Had a genuinely good laugh, though I pity myself.)

I am from sri lanka. here TB is known as kase. if someone has TB, they are rejected from the society, and people say sometimes it's their bad karma and make them feel like it's their fault they got the disease. luckily due to the advancement of the medical field, it's eradicated from here as far as I know, but mindset of some people hasn't changed yet.

I adress this TB poorly on another video about vampire myth this channel make at 2013. Saying (you) unknown diseases on romanian/transilvania times is indeed TB diseases well known. I speak on my original comentary by saying about a certain ritual make on graves that directly combat the TB disease.

heard on the radio while working that platypus milk contains bacteria killing enzymes that is harmless to humans the only thing they haven't figured out is how to synthesize it for drug use. but if they made it for working class citizens and the poor the pharmaceutical companies will lose millions as they cant make symptom blockers out of it making us dependable on it.xD
