Tuberculosis spreading through cheese and other dairy products

An estimated 9.6 million people were infected by tuberculosis, according to the World Health Organization. Potentially fatal — 1.5 million died from it the same year — it is a disease known to be spread from human to human. But a subset of those contracting the disease today are getting it from infected animals. Unbeknownst to many, tuberculosis can spread through your food, as well as the air, via infected animals. The most common culprits are infected cattle and their infected food products, such as milk and cheese are the most common source. Cows and many other animals can harbor bovine tuberculosis (TB), a disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium bovis — a close relative of the bacteria that cause human tuberculosis. Risk of human disease rises when animal infections aren’t controlled, which results in more spreading of the disease.
