    Tuberculosis is a disease in which the lungs are attacked by a bacteria. The bacteria causes an infection and basically eats away at the lining in the lungs. This is what causes the coughing and the blood.

    If it goes untreated, TB can kill you. The person sort of drowns. It's an airbourne bacteria, which means if you around someone with TB and they cough, sneeze, or even breathe in your direction, then you can get it.

    The best thing these days is that TB is completely curable through a series of antibiotics.

    Moulin Rouge Satine

    Satine had Tuberculosis, which is basically when your lung gets infected very badly, but it also can attack other parts of the body.

    On a sidenote, Moulin Rouge was such a great movie! My eyes were like fire hydrants, shooting out water, by the end of the movie. So sad!
