A study on how mining has contributed significantly to tuberculosis makes an interesting counter-point to the boasting of company health initiatives. Funding TB eradication is often part of Corporate Social Responsibility propaganda, and as such presented as philanthropy. However, it can be seen in this light as cleaning up the very nests they have fouled.

What is not covered in this article is the tendency to mis-diagnose cases of silicosis (incurable) as tuberculosis (curable) still prevalent in some countries and among medical authorities, including those closely associated with companies. There is more on this topic in a paper given by Dr Shula Marks at a London Mining Network organised public meeting after the Anglo American AGM on 22 April 2010.
