Sticker relating to spitting, London, England, c. 1950-1970

Spitting is an anti-social habit. However, the 'Spitting spreads disease' message carried by this adhesive sticker suggests it was intended as a public health measure against tuberculosis. This is a dangerous infectious disease spread via airborne droplets produced by coughing, sneezing, or spitting. The sticker was made by the Central Council for Health Education, London, England, between 1950 and 1970.
