Scientists have discovered a new most dangerous substance in the world

Scientists have discovered a new type of botulinum toxin — a strong poison from organic toxins and chemicals — and argue that it is now the most dangerous substance in the world. As neutralizing antitoxin has not yet developed, the details of its genetic structure is not published, for security reasons.

New toxin so deadly that only enough of an injection of two billionths of a gram, or inhaling 13 billionths of a gram to kill an adult. Just think what would happen if you take a spoonful of this substance and pour into urban water supply. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin protein nature that produce Clostridium botulinum bacteria, and he acts on the nervous system, disrupting the cranial nerves, the nerve centers of the heart and skeletal muscles, eventually causing botulism and death by paralysis.

The main thing in this discovery accounts for the fact that it is not an artificially created toxin and natural origin. Formerly known 7 types of botulinum toxin, each of which is characterized by its toxicity, but recently scientists have found a eighth type, and not somewhere, and in the stool sample of the baby, who was infected with botulism.
