Terrorism Response and the Environmental Health Role: The Million Dollar (and Some) Question
Rebecca Berg, Ph.D.
Published in September 2004, V. 67, Issue 2, pp. 29–39.

Abstract

This article discusses some urgent reasons for environmental health to be involved in terrorism response and emergency preparedness and the question of what form that involvement should take. It also takes a frank look at some obstacles to involvement, as well as at some good reasons for the distinct ambivalence that exists within the profession.

Efficacy and Durability of Bacillus anthracis Bacteriophages Used Against Spores
Michael. H. Walter, Ph.D.
Published in July/Aug 2003, V.66, Issue 1, pp 9-15.

Abstract

Antibiotics and vaccines help fight anthrax disease, but there are no anthrax spore control methods suitable for use in environments where humans are present. The work reported in this article indicates that bacteriophages may help reduce risk from anthrax spores. Dose-response studies demonstrated that higher concentrations of mixed Bacillus anthracis bacteriophages (3.5 x 108 plaque-forming units per milliliter) inhibited subsequent growth of bacteria when sprayed on B. anthracis spores. Phages also were tested for durabil
