*Professor from Futurma* GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! I've modified anthrax to attack the cancer cells in tumors. I tried it on some mice and it worked! This is a tremendous breakthrough! </prof>

    The article speak of a toxin produced by the anthrax, and not the bacteria herself.



    Chimiotherapia, is using poison to cure cancer. You have to find a poison that destroy the cancerous cell, but that do not destroy too much the others cells. In short research in chimiotherapia is finding selective poisons.



    I know it sounds weird, to cure cancer with a mass weapon destruction, but it's logical afterall.

    If a high percentage of postal workers suffer from cancer, those anthrax mailers have a new defense.
