Anthrax is an infectious disease caused due to a particular type of bacteria known as Bacillus anthracis. The most infected parts in humans are the gastrointestinal tract, lungs or the skin. Anthrax usually affects hoofed animals like cattle, goats and sheep. However, humans contract the disease when they come in contact with the infected animals.

Anthrax can be contracted through one of the three ways.
• Cutaneous anthrax occurs when a person touches the anthrax spores with a scrape or cut on the skin.
• Inhalation anthrax occurs when the anthrax spores get into the lungs via the respiratory tract.
• Gastrointestinal anthrax occurs when a person consumes anthrax-tainted meat.
