This chapter takes a look at the conflicting opinions on how the anthrax epidemic started. It first describes the victims of the outbreak (mostly male, bachelors, and were usually mobile), and then stresses that the explanations of epidemics almost always include some blame for misbehavior. Two of the arguments on the source of the outbreak were contaminated sausages and the neglect of the food industry. The chapter also studies the incubation period of anthrax, finds the point/s of common exposure, and looks at the modern outbreaks of anthrax (both animal and human), based on the reports of the World Health Organization.
