I would have no problem with food industry workers being tested for Hep B and C. Truth is that the hygiene standards for infected workers should be the same as for non-infected workers in the industry, but still, we are talking about public health here. At least if a worker is diagnosed with Hep B or C they will know to be extra cautious. Nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately testing is sometimes used in order to adversely discriminate. Yes, discrimination can act positively too.Maybe in the future they can force people to prove they don't have every virus or bacterial infection.
Good on yah! Have a medal from me!Thrasymachus wrote:Oh, I will likely be free of high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol. Also from now on I will be free of all the dangerous known and listed ingredients in vaccines, not to mention the unlisted ones as contain animal or human tissue and the attendant viruses, pathogens and bacteria in the included protein sample!

For children? Don't be so sure.Thrasymachus wrote:Sorry you are just ignorant in everything you have written in this thread. In the USA there is no tuberculosis vaccine.
Bzzzzzzt! Wrong! I had TB shots in New Zealand. My brother was vaccinated in Australia. Children are vaccinated in Greece too. etc...Only in the USSR and Soviet bloc, was there a vaccine.
What are you talking about? TB is a lung disease transmitted via infected saliva mainly through coughing and sneezing. It is not a water born disease transmitted via infected excretement. You are talking about meningitis. TB is problematic in India and other 3rd world nations because the health of inhabitants in these nations is generally compromised, thus making them prone to infection. In first world countries it is people with compromised immune systems that are more likely to be infected and suffer from TB.You know where TB is a big issue? India. Probably because it is a country where most the population is horribly poor and poop into the streets, rivers and waterways. Then they go and fetch water from where or near where they just defecated.
