Botox, or botulinus
toxin, is one of the world's deadliest poisons.
With regard to biological agents, the biological warfare programs of both the United States and the former Soviet Union had Bacillus anthracis (anthrax), botulinus
toxin, and Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis virus in their respective biological weapons arsenals.
Among the arsenal is 19,000 litres of botulinus
, less than 10 litres of which could wipe out most of the population of Scotland.
HIS scientists tested huge quantities of terrifying agents, including anthrax, botulinus
and aflatoxin - enough germs to kill everyone on earth.
However, bacteria such as botulinus
can only be destroyed by temperatures above the boiling point of water.
toxin, non-chlorinated bacterial proteins, is very toxic.
