What better place than this site? Where we can find the awesome experience of nurses; some of whom are educators, and students who are creative to find ways to make things easier.

CDC - Tuberculosis (TB)
But if someone coughing can spread TB....it stands to reason that smoking after someone infected with TB or a common cold can cause an infection.
