Alternative TB TEST! (blood test)
Also if you have an allergy to phenol, Mantoux TB test has Phenol in it. Tell them you have an allergy to Phenol
excerpt from article on ingredients The package insert claims that "Tubersol is prepared from a large batch Master Batch, Connaught Tuberculin (CT68) and is a cell-free purified protein fraction obtained from a human strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis grown on a protein-free synthetic medium, and inactivated. Tubersol is a sterile isotonic solution of Tuberculin in phosphate buffered saline containing Tween 80 as a stabilizer. 0.28 percent phenol is added as a preservative." (read more at the webpage)
The 1972 edition of Encyclopedia and Dictionary of Medicine and Nursing defines phenol as "an extremely poisonous antiseptic, germicidal and disinfectant." The Oxford Universal Dictionary (1955) defines phenol as "A hydroxyl derivative of benzene, commonly known as carbolic acid."

As a homeopath I would suggest, from a homeopathic perspective, BCG vaccine and/or so many TB tests (as well as other vaccines) are contributing to so many children having the problems they are having. As a homeopath we look at what are called miasms and so many now have disturbances we recognize as a tubercular miasm evidenced by hyperactivitiy, ear infections, ADD/ADHD, and so much..................Sheri Nakken, RN, MA, Classical Homeopath
From: "Phyllis Georgic, Homeopath"
"Yes.... I recommend that everyone use their state or commonwealth's religious or philosophical exemption for this one.... I used it myself when it was demanded that I have one done in order to do required volunteer work in my Catholic Parish School's cafeteria.... I do work there at least once per month without any TB Tine test results stated.... They know in this school that I envoke the "religious exemption" for my children and have not asked me about it for myself since then..."
BTW This vaccine has tuberculosis in it... That is how your can show reactivity to TB with it.... It can kick up the tubercular miasm in those with that miasm.....which is about 87% of all on the planet.... This is noted with ringworm and other fungus and skin eruptions and sores....asthma and bronchitis, croup and kidney disorders of all kinds... Be aware of these.... Note and mark those reactions that you see in others who have had the tests.....Observe for yourself.... Maybe not after the first of second test but be assured, that after multiple tests, you will see this reaction... Allergies to molds, pets, birds (i.e. feather pillows, down comforters) dust, dairy products....etc....
If you have had a BCG vaccine you can have a FALSE POSITIVE TB testA tuberculosis diagnosis is never based solely on a Mantoux / PPD tuberculosis test. If you test positive, your doctor will order a chest x-ray and/or sputum culture.
If this is positive, treatment IS REQUIRED BY LAW. The drugs are terrible. You can't choose your treatment - the drugs are forced upon you.
Court Ordered Management ( Quarantine )
Tuberculosis Elimination Department is able to obtain a court ordered management of TB for a small number of patients who are unable or unwilling to adhere to treatment recommendations of their local health department in accordance with CHAPTER 81, SUBCHAPTER G (LAW ) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
Tuberculosis Woman Found Posted: 2/21/2004 8:39:44 PM
Authorities have tracked down and arrested a Tulsa woman with tuberculosis. Tracy Bunner had been avoiding authorities for months. Bunner has active tuberculosis and health officials say she agreed in October to stay in quarantine and take medicine. The health department provides free medicine to anyone with the illness. However, the department says Bunner has not been cooperating and a judge ordered her to be put in jail until she completes her therapy. Bunner will be held in a special cell that will prevent other inmates from being infected with the virus. Bunnerís treatment could take six months to a year.
