Biological warfare is also known as germ warfare. Infectious agents (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) or biological toxins (poisonous compounds produced by organisms) are used to kill or harm people. This may result in disruption to the economy and society. Deliberate release of dangerous biological material has been used throughout history to kill and injure people. Water supplies poisoned with infected human or animal carcasses, plague contaminated bodies thrown over city walls, contaminated food supplies and arrows infected by dipping them in decomposing bodies are all classic examples of germ warfare. Modern bioterrorism has made terrifying progress by mutating strains to be significantly more lethal.
