Following up on our earlier post about anthrax susceptibility, this NPR report has some important information from an American study of the accidental release of anthrax in the former Soviet Union in 1979. According to the study, those who came down with inhalation anthrax were all “middle-aged or older,” had “occupational lung damage,” and were “all heavy smokers.”

Again, this seems like information we might want people to know.

P.S. Special thanks to TPM reader PB for sending along the link.
