Anthrax is an infection caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It can occur in four forms: skin, lungs, intestinal and injection. Symptoms begin between one day to over two months after the infection is contracted. The skin form presents as a characteristic black blister.
Physicians and researchers have debated the cause of tuberculosis (TB) for centuries. In Book 1, Of the Epidemics (410-400 BCE) Hippocrates describes the cause of TB as a “weakness of the lung,” a view shared by the dentist Weston A. Price.
