    Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria, pollution doesn’t INFECT you with the disease. Now TB is an opportunistic illness and there is some evidence that significant levels of pollution can “trigger” a latent infection, but it in and of itself isn’t a pathogen.

    I was surprised that Gary Indiana USA wasn't on this list.
    The smell of factors will make your stomach turn.
    When I go to Chicago and business. I take a train before I get to the Gary Indiana station I put a gas mask on. Cuz the smell of factories will make her stomach turn. Then we leave Gary I take the mask off. If you want during a real gas mask? the answer is yes
    Looks like one from WW2 but more modern
