PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST BIOTERRORISM
From fears of full-scale germ warfare to the spread of dangerous and deadly illnesses, we are faced with a new breed of anxiety -- and more questions than ever -- about our safety and well-being in the face of bioterrorism. Dr. Philip M. Tierno, a member of the New York City Mayor's Task Force on Bioterrorism, addresses our fears with the most powerful antidote: information.
Dr. Tierno explains:
  • how germs can be used as potential weapons -- and how they can't
  • how to distinguish the symptoms of a deadly disease from a run-of-the-mill bug
  • how these diseases are treated
  • how to assess the level of risk we face in our daily lives
  • how to sort fact from myth in the face of frightening new developments
  • what you can do to safeguard your family's health
