For those of you too young to remember, the "population explosion" was the global warming of the early 70's. It was all over pop culture, in the schools and media. Something had to be done and apparently somebody did. Africa was not chosen by accident.
Today, the population problem is no longer a private matter. In a world of nearly 4 billion people increasing by 2 percent, or 80 million more, every year, population growth and how to restrain it are public concerns that command the attention of national and international leaders. The per capital income gap between the developed and the developing countries is increasing, in large part the result of higher birth rates in the poorer countries.
It is quite clear that one of the major challenges of the 1970s, the Second United Nations Development Decade, will be to curb the world's fertility.

It scares me that they instantly send samples to the US and France as both have the capabilities to turn diseases like this into weapons.

Does anyone know if Cholera is aerobic or anaerobic? I can't find this anywhere.
If it's anaerobic than it should be very vulnerable to oxidation treatments such as MMS or hydrogen peroxide.
Well most harmful bacteria are anaerobic any way.
Pathogenesis of the facultative anaerobe Vibrio cholerae takes place at the gut under low oxygen concentrations.
