Gee, interesting that there is nothing said about WHY the increase.. In the early growth of America, every person seeking to enter the U.S.A. was tested for TB.. and if found to have TB, they were denied access to this country.
Now, with 1/3 (your figures) of the Third World so infected, and with our total lack of border control, we wonder "Why"???
And MtnView, with its seemingly welcoming arms is pro-immigrant (workers at locations, Worker's "centers".. etc.. you can stop worrying..
I do NOT mean this in a racist way at all.. just that this is another "benefit" of our immigration policies..

It's just amazing how the author of the article is loath to mention the words or tie in the term illegal immigration to this story. Illegal immigration is a HUGE factor in the rise of TB, and other diseases, in this area. The sooner we come to terms with it, the better.
