What is Tuberculosis (TB)?

Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial disease that is infectious in nature. The causal bacterium is named Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The first prey to TB is an individual’s lungs but it can spread out to any organ of the body.

A person can become infected with tuberculosis bacteria when he or she inhales the bacteria present in the air. When somebody is already infected with tuberculosis and he coughs, sneezes, shouts, or spits, the bacteria spreads in the air making it infectious. When the inhaled tuberculosis bacteria enter the lungs, they can multiply and cause a local lung infection (pneumonia).

The local lymph nodes of the lungs may also get infected and become enlarged. Tuberculosis can be treated successfully today with antibiotics.You can prevent yourself from disease and keep yourself healthy by eating loads of fruits and vegetables, exercising daily, stopping the consumption of alcohol and smoking.
