So, of our 100 initially infected (or rather of the 95 who have not developed TB), another five will show the disease at some time later in life. The remaining 90 per cent will never show any signs of the disease (other than the immunological response shown by a skin test, which shows they have been infected). If we look at people in the UK who have TB, many of those who were born in this country are elderly and are presumed to have been infected many years ago, when TB was more common. A second category are those who have either migrated here from a high-incidence country and have brought the disease with them, or who are the children or grandchildren of such immigrants, and therefore have had more contact with such cases (including possibly frequent visits to countries with a lot of TB).
A more significant piece of work by Snow, which he referred to as his ‘Grand Experiment’, was a study of the number of deaths from cholera in a part of South London. This area was served by two water companies, the Lambeth Waterworks Company and the Southwark and Vauxhall Water Company. Their pipes ran side by side down each street and some people got their water from one and some from the other. He painstakingly mapped out which water company served each house, and related that to the number of deaths from cholera.
This contrasts with some other types of infection, notably food poisoning, where most forms are more common in summer. These infections are due to bacteria multiplying in the food, which happens more readily in warm weather (see Chapter 5). If a microbe manages to evade the first lines of defence, and gets into the blood stream, it is then attacked by a variety of mechanisms known collectively as innate immunity, to distinguish it from the more familiar adaptive immunity. The latter requires the body to recognize a specific microbe and to produce a specific response to it.
