Your Health

Show #13 field items focus on tuberculosis. About 2 billion people are still infected world wide and as many as three million people die from TB every year. In the item we meet Anita Hall. Born in Canada, she never dreamed she was at risk. And she lived with active TB for months before she was diagnosed and treated. Maureen's studio guest is Dr. Jay Keystone, an infectious disease expert at the University Health Network. We know that in Toronto immigrants and refugees make up 90 percent of new cases of active tuberculosis. And that's despite the fact that immigrants are screened. However, they're not screened for other things like Hepatitis B and HIV, which are also deadly and costly to treat. Dr. Paul Caldwell talks about knee pain.
