Biological and chemical weapons:

Biological and chemical weapons are easier than nuclear arms to produce and hide,
although they do require specialized scientific expertise in order to be effectively used.

Biological agents are odorless, tasteless and invisible to the human eye. Weight-for-
weight, they are hundreds to thousands of times more potent than a chemical weapon,
according to the Center for Defense and International Security Studies in the UK.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States lists six biological
diseases as "high-priority" biological agents that pose a risk to national security.

The CDC also describes more than two dozen chemical agents that could be
used as terrorist weapons.

Anthrax

Botulism

Plague

Smallpox

Tularemia

Viral Hemorragic Fever

Sulfur Mustards

VX

Sarin

Chlorine

Hydrogen Cyanide

Ricine

Tabun and Soman
