The media have trained us to fear Anthrax even though it is a naturally occurring substance found in the soil of any working farm. Militarized Anthrax is not the natural Anthrax you find on a farm. Anthrax that has been militarized means that is has been “ground up” into the tiniest possible spore form for easy transmission in the air via the wind for inhalation into the lungs. Once Anthrax gets inside your body, your chances of survival are not very good. Militarized Anthrax is a silent killer that takes a bit of time to develop in the body as a cause of death, so marking the time and point of infection is more difficult, and that makes Militarized Anthrax an effective, invisible, assassin. Anthrax, and its natural danger to humans, is all around us all the time.
