Biological Warfare Agents

Biological warfare is the intentional use of micro-organisms, and toxins, generally of microbial, plant or animal origin to produce disease and death in humans, livestock and crops. The attraction of bio-weapons in war, and for use in terrorist attacks is attributed to easy access to a wide range of disease-producing biological agents, to their low production costs, to their non-detection by routine security systems, and to their easy transportation from one place to another. In addition, accessible technologies give rise to the extensive use of such weapons that have implications for regional and global security. In counteraction of such threats, and in securing the culture and defense of peace, the need for leadership and example in devising and implementing preventive and protective strategies has been stressed through international consultation.  Adherence to the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention reinforced by confidence-building measures sustained by use of monitoring and verification protocols, is indeed, an important and necessary step in reducing and eliminating the threats of biological warfare and bioterrorism. I will be explaining how the new measures to such toxins can and will be beneficial.
