Abstract:

Biological Warfare is generally regarded as highly unethical and morally repulsive. The attraction for Biological weapons, as well as for chemical or nuclear weapons in war and terrorist attack is attributed to their devastating effects, due to their common property of wreaking mass destruction. The particular attention focused on biological weapons is attributed to their low production costs and easier access to a wide range of microorganisms that can be used in criminal purposes.
