- How to find specific ANTHRAX information available in this page:

- Under "Edit" in your browser's tool bar,
click on "Find in Page"
enter the word you want information on (for example, anthrax)
then press "Find" (may be different in some Internet browsers) to get the information you need.

- Or just scroll around - it's not a very large page and you'll probably be able to find what you're looking for that way, too.

The Center for Disease Control's page on Anthrax Very complete information on Anthrax, created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), United States Department of Health and Human Services).

The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy's Anthrax section According to Dave Bender of The University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), their anthrax section is regularly updated with news stories focusing on the medical aspects and implications for bioterrorism of the anthrax bacillus (bacillus anthracis is the current "scientific" name for this nasty little bug).

The "Overview" feature of this site provides current and comprehensive medical information about anthrax. According to Dave Bender, this site also has scores of medically reviewed links to other resources on and off the Internet.

Links with extensive technical data on biological weapons:

Medical Management Of Biological Casualties Handbook, Third Edition, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), Ft. Detrick, Frederick, MD : The United States Army's standard textbook for training military and other physicians on how to treat victims of biological warfare agents (including anthrax)

The CDC's page on specific precautions workers can take to protect themselves around anthrax.

Prominent attorney Ross Getman researched the facts surrounding the biological terror attacks using anthrax shortly after 9/11, and has published his findings in "Al Qaeda, Anthrax and Ayman" This article raises important questions about the anthrax letter attacks; Getman's work seems at least as credible and well-founded as anything on the subject released by the FBI or the Attorney General in the wake of the attacks.

- I'll try to keep this page updated and of maximum usefulness to all of you.

-'s banner ad at the bottom of this page automatically suggests books on chemical and biological warfare. Many of these (like Ken Alibek's "Biohazard" and Mike Osterholm's "Living Terrors") are books that I've read and found very interesting. Cool, huh?

- A big "Thanks!" to those of you who've left positive feedback on this page and site!

Now, if you're going to BUY a book or video - check out (through my site, of course, heh heh... ) first through the new banner at the bottom of this page! Notice that the banner automatically suggests books on chemical, biological and nuclear weapons-related topics.

Amazon's prices are good, and you help me keep this page open when you order books or videos of ANY kind through this link (the one with the pictures just below this text).
