Anthrax is a zoonotic disease caused by bacteria called Bacillus anthracis. It is transmissible to humans through handling or consumption of contaminated animal products. Infection in humans most frequently occurs on the skin, in the gastrointestinal tract and in the lungs. Like most Bacillus bacterium, B. anthracis is spore-forming which can survive in extremely harsh environments for decades, and even centuries.
