The Killing Machine
What are the causes of this nasty disease?
Tuberculosis is "an infectious disease that mainly affects the lungs, but can also involve other organs" (Levitzky 267). "The number one cause of Tuberculosis in Africa is overcrowded conditions and malnutrition" (Goldmann 491). While you are sitting at home eating whatever you please think about all the people starving in Africa and then contracting such nasty diseases like Tuberculosis.
How is this Killing Machine effecting Africa?
"Anually more then 587,000 deaths occur in Africa due to Tuberculosis" (Shah 78). "More then ten percent of the Tuberculosis deaths in Africa are children under the age of five" (Chameleon Interactive).
What can you do to help get rid of TB in Africa?
" The Geneva Based Global Fund To Fight Tuberculosis has been created to help combat the increasing rate of Tuberculosis in Africa" ( Shah 78). Please help the sick and dieing people, give to the Geneva Fund and save African lives!
