Here is an excellent resource entitled:
A MAJOR THREAT TO NORTH AMERICA.
WHAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
CAN DO DEFENSIVELY
I plan on printing out a copy and reading extensively. Here is an excerpt, written by Larry Harris a registered microbiologist:
EVERY NORTH AMERICAN MUST KNOW.
1. The types of biological agents and their effects.
2. How biological agents can be detected.
3. How to use their protective equipment.
4. How to care for their protective equipment.
5. How to perform first aid.
6.. How to remove biological agents from themselves and their equipment. As a North American, you must master the six objectives listed above. Learning these objectives now will make the next chapters easier to read and understand. When you have mastered the six objectives fisted, the payoff will justify your efforts. You and your community will then be prepared to perform your jobs against an enemy using biological and chemical agents. Such preparedness results when training, knowledge, confidence, and courage replace fear and panic.
WAYS OF KILLING MICROORGANISMS
1. Boiling at least 15 minutes.
2. Water purification tablets.
3. Soap, scrubbing.
4. Sunning your clothes on a line.
5. Cooking. Good defenses against biological agents.
Biological agents cannot be detected by your five senses or by chemical detectors. Their presence can be confirmed only by laboratory examination. Furthermore, biological agents do not produce immediate effects. The time between exposure to an agent and the beginning of disease symptoms (known as the incubation period) can vary from a few hours to several days, depending upon the agent used. Men exposed to equal amounts of an agent will react differently. Some may escape disease entirely, others may have very mild attacks, while others may become seriously ill.
9.4 HOW BIOLOGICAL AGENTS GET INTO THE BODY
Most biological agents in aerosol form get into the body...
