Philadelpia Main Line

A rare lung infection that affects affluent older white women has doctors stumped. The infection is called Nontuberculous Mycobacteria or NTM for short.

The lung infection, similar to tuberculosis, is caused by a bacteria that is found in water, soil, and in the air.

Even though the bacteria is everywhere, it seems to affect only Caucasian, post-menopausal women who are thin and physically fit.

The infection is found in clusters of affluent old money areas such as Philadelphia’s Main Line and south Florida.

“This is being researched very intensively right now,” says Dr. Leah Lande, a pulmonologist at Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.

Dr Lande says she has treated about 100 patients with the lung infection.

“This is in all of our water,” says Dr. Lande. “We are exposed to it everyday when we take a shower.”

Dr. Lande says mycobacteria can be especially dangerous when it's aerosolized in the shower or expelled into the air from a humidifier.

The symptoms of NTM include a cough and fatigue (feeling extremely tired).

54-year-old Karen McCarthy was diagnosed with NTM in May after she suffered from fatigue and a chronic cough.

McCarthy is taking antibiotics until next September to rid her lungs of the infection. Standard treatment for tuberculosis is 6 months on antibiotics.

McCarthy says she was shocked to learn that being physically fit and drinking lots of water may have contributed to her infection.

She installed a water filtration system in her home to prevent reoccurrence of the disease.

“You’re thinking, have you hurt yourself by drinking water,” says McCarthy.

Doctors say black people and people who are overweight are resistant to the infection.

It is not known why the mycobacteria only infects a certain race and class of people.

“A lot of people are trying to figure that out now but that’s not really understood right now," says Dr. Lande.

At least one person in Florida died after contracting NTM.

Drinking bottled water does not provide protection from the infection.

Aqua Pennsylvania, which supplies bottled water to the Philadelphia area, says there is no EPA-approved method to measure the bacteria in city water.

All bottled water companies get their water from municipal water supply.

    Don't affluent white folk drink bottled water like Smartwater or my personal favorite Fiji? Don't they have gardeners and eat at fancy shmancy restaurants and have air purifiers?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It would be cheaper to buy out the residents and abandon the town.
    None of those residents should ever trust the government (local, state, or federal) again.

    girl.. I saw a clip of it on instagram. at first I thought it was a parody, over here with the freeway marsha voice: this can't be reeeeeallll.

  • Yoni

    Does this fall under the "white folks wanna be oppressed so bad" category? Are they trying to be "asthmatic"? Do they want to taste the contents of inhalers? In turn, trying to find a way to turn it into the new "drug" of choice? Yes?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Well I guess it's the most highs way of YT population control. Oh well my fat black ass can't and won't be affected. ? So much for white privileged.

    Sadly depression is a very real problem for lots of people. It's only socially acceptable for WW though. This is a terrible stigma because it keeps lots of people from seeking the treatment that they really need.

    I think mental health services/counseling should be available to everyone. Even (perhaps especially) the 'hardest' dude has issues that he needs to work through.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    Yeah, it's tough. And some of us don't have the luxury to be able to take time to resolve these issues. The atigma within our own xommunities contributes to people avoiding treatment as well. The whole narrative on mental health in this country has to change.

    Bless you and your husband. I'm sure he's a fine man, just human like the rest of us.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Yep. You can tell. Its everything. I had a hangover 4th of July lol and I did it as soon as I got back to our hotel and damn it I was back in the game coach!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    The lady in the bathtub still makes me jump, when watching the shinning. "IT" had me sideeyeing clowns and storm drains for a long, long long time.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Yes. A spoonful in my coffee.

  • SummerBaby

    Wait whet?! I never knew it could relieve hangovers.

  • felinelurker

    Hold up. I thought you do this & spit it out? No?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Coconut oil cures a whole lot. I put some on my mama. She had a burn. It healed up in 3 days. That is fast for her. She has bad circulation.

  • Cares4uWishElectionwasover

    Sounds like a BS disease.

  • harley_quinn2.0

  • Libra80sBaby

    I tried it this morning. 2 tablespoons for my acid reflux and energy. I dont think I notice a change in energy...

  • ?E?E?M?A

    They'll get the cure by the end of this week! It's about time something affected them. Every disease can't only affect poor black people.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Me too and yes it is

  • ?E?E?M?A

    OMG Dineva is going to go HAM with this story!

  • hottlanta

    Yep black folks wanna pray everything away instead of facing the fact that they have a problem. Praying without action doesn't do anyone any good. As if it is a sin to say I am not feeling well today. I said that to one chick and she went to "hooping and hollering don't bring that over here." I said well dayum I am not feeling well today you asked me a question. I ain't got time to be going around here smiling and cheesing like Suzy Sunshine happy 24/7 like life is good. To say things are not good is to be first honest with yourself. Second, recognizing you have a problem and third find a solution to make it better. We drive ourselves insane trying to be perfect.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I thought that in rich neighborhoods the water would be cleaner but I guess tap water is bad everywhere. Better to distill your water and avoid all the chemicals and stuff...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I take three tablespoons every day. Two in my tumeric tea and one in my green tea... makes your skin and hair beautiful! I also use it on my body.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I do it every morning

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Tablespoon every night

    Once again, you go for Hillary, what about the news on WHY Trump thinks he a celebrity and can grab women in the "pu$$y" or how he lusts after his own daughter and how he has benefited from "illegal aliens" labor but yet calling for them to be departed.

  • Felicia Kelley

    One of the most ignorant statements in the hall of fame of ignorant statements..

    Depression HAS NOTHING to do with a pity party..

    I can only say, "keep on living".. As the old folks say.

  • Felicia Kelley

    I used to work in Mental Health, the saddest thing ever was discovering who was more responsible for all the stigma.. The Psychiatrists and Social Workers..

    Trauma is real!!!

    As well as chemical imbalances.

  • Felicia Kelley

    PREACH

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I'm not sure why Hillary is depicted above, because she isn't thin.

    I was thinking there's something in their air filtration systems or even a type of mold in their homes that is causing this issue. Showers are good for causing mold where there are no windows/proper ventilation.

    I would check for construction flaws if the homes are less than 15 years old. Renovations and new constructions may be covered under the law. There may be a defect in the materials used. Or there are chemtrails or something in those affluent areas adversely impacting those residents.

    Ok thanks for my daily dose of insults. Appreciate you. But i consider all that depression symptoms to be begging for more attention to cry woe is me. Now u actually could have stated your opinion without the insults. You could have taken the time to make a point. Guess ya point is your just a rude ass. Its all good though.
