The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just issued an update warning of the threat of anthrax being used as a bioterrorist attack.
The CDC updated its website to warn that anthrax would most likely be used if the United States is hit with a bioterrorist attack.
According to the CDC’s website:
“If a bioterrorist attack were to happen, Bacillus anthracis, the bacteria that causes anthrax, would be one of the biological agents most likely to be used.”
“Anthrax makes a good weapon because it can be released quietly and without anyone knowing,” the CDC’s warning continues.
“The microscopic spores could be put into powders, sprays, food, and water.
“Because they are so small, you may not be able to see, smell, or taste them.”
The CDC warning comes after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new anthrax vaccine just last week….
