In brief: STD's, TB, & More

Many diseases are spread orally through mouth contact and saliva.
Common diseases include many sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, and others. Tuburculosis is spread through sputum and oral contact also. Saliva, however, contains many protective enzymes , and without it, more diseases would be spread orally. I hope this helps you..
