ATLANTA, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Before you stabbed a fork into your salad, did you consider a bio-terrorist could have flown a drone over the lettuce field? Should our vegetable fields be No-Drone Zones?
Mark Tamplin (www.marktamplin.com), pathogen expert and author of Phage, exposes the soft underbelly of the nation's biodefense system, revealing how easily terrorists can:
- contaminate crop fields with drones,
- slip through airport screening with biological weapons, and worse
- design biological agents from within the government institutions meant to keep us safe.
In Phage, Dr. Sam Townsend faces the greatest challenge of his career, preventing Dr. Owen Potter, a deranged government scientist from unleashing a genetically-engineered pathogen on the USA population. This would-be mass assassin frames Townsend, who is forced to run from authorities while scrambling to produce the antidote and wrestle the demons from his past. Even if Townsend succeeds in time, he is still faced with delivering the antidote to all of the victims who unknowingly have a biological time bomb ticking in their bodies.
