The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website has a very eerie warning regarding anthrax.
On the CDC’s website it warns that “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.”
The CDC’s warning continues “Anthrax makes a good weapon because it can be released quietly and without anyone knowing. 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.”
As The Gateway Pundit reported last week, the FDA recently approved Emergent BioSolution’s new anthrax vaccine for adults 18-65.
The FDA approved Cyfendus for use for any confirmed or suspected exposure to anthrax but must be administered with antibacterial drugs.

Per The CDC:
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. Biological agents are germs that can sicken or kill people, livestock, or crops. Anthrax is one of the most likely agents to be used because Anthrax spores are easily found in nature, can be produced in a lab, and can last for a long time in the environment.
Anthrax makes a good weapon because it can be released quietly and without anyone knowing. 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. Anthrax has been used as a weapon before.
Anthrax has been used as a weapon around the world for nearly a century. In 2001, powdered anthrax spores were deliberately put into letters that were mailed through the U.S. postal system. Twenty-two people, including 12 mail handlers, got anthrax, and five of these 22 people died.
Anthrax cases among livestock in the US have seen a spike in recent months.
The Minnesota Board of Animal Health recently reported their first case of cattle being infected with anthrax in over a decade.

Per Fox 9 News:
The Minnesota Board of Animal Health announced cattle in northwestern Minnesota were infected with anthrax, the first recorded case in the state for more than a decade.
The disease was detected in a horse and cattle in Kittson County, and the property has since been quarantined, the BAH said in a press release Friday.
The last reported anthrax case was detected in a cow from Pennington County in June 2013. In the past, anthrax has typically been concentrated in northwest Minnesota and is rarely seen in the state as livestock can be vaccinated against the disease.
Back in March, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. believes the CIA is connected to the anthrax attacks.
