The three different types of Anthrax are distinguished mostly by the way in which they are contracted. The first type of Anthrax is called Pulmonary Anthrax. Pulmonary Anthrax is contracted through the respiratory inhalation of the Anthrax spores. This type leads to cold and flu like symptoms that persist for several days, eventually culminating the respiratory failure. This is the same type of Anthrax that was used in the infamous 2001 Anthrax attacks, and is that same type that is used in biological warfare. The second type of Anthrax is called Gastrointestinal Anthrax. A victim develops this form of Anthrax through the ingestion of infected meat. Vomiting blood, loss of appetite, digestive tract inflammation, and severe diarrhea are common symptoms of this form. The third type of Anthrax is called Cutaneous Anthrax, and affects the body when anthrax spores enter the skin through an open cut or lesion. Cutaneous Anthrax leads to a skin ulcer that usually forms a black center. If left without treatment, this form of Anthrax can lead to further complications such as Toxemia, resulting in death.

Farm animals. Although, in the US we vaccinate farm animals against anthrax. World wide, however, sheep and cows are the most common victims of anthrax. It is more of a livestock disease than a human one. Humans are certainly susceptible to anthrax and if you walk around barefoot on a farm with an open cut you may find yourself with an anthrax infection. Anthrax is not very dangerous unless it is prepared as a weapon. You are in more danger from influenza or pneumonia. ;)

The bacteria that cause anthrax may be used as a type of biological warfare, since it is possible to become infected simply by inhaling the spores, and inhaled anthrax is the most serious form of the disease.
