What is Anthrax?
Anthrax is a disease of farm animals that can be passed on to man. It attacks the skin, producing deep ulcers, or the lungs, causing pneumonia and, in untreated cases, eventual death. Any outbreak of the disease is brought under strict control in most countries, and anthrax in man is extremely rare.
