Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Culling: ‘Totally drug-resistant’ tuberculosis found in South Africa

About a quarter of TB cases in Africa occur in South Africa, with more than 389,000 South Africans getting the disease annually, US News reported. Tuberculosis cure rates have dropped from 73 percent in 2008 to 53 percent in 2010 as a growing number of cases are emerging MDR, or multi drug-resistant TB, and XDR, extremely drug-resistant TB.

The severity of the drug-resistant TB epidemic in South Africa “emphasizes the urgent need for curbing the rising incidence of drug resistance in the country,” the researchers wrote. “This result can only be achieved by implementing appropriate intervention strategies based on knowledge of the mechanisms fueling this epidemic.”  | GlobalPost
