Scientists at the California Department of Public Health recently discovered the world’s deadliest substance: a variation of the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Just injecting 2 billionths of a gram or inhaling 13 billionths of a gram will kill a human adult, making it the most lethal substance known to man. The bacteria causes paralysis in the body by preventing the release of the chemical acetycholine, which allows muscles to move.

The scientists have kept the DNA sequence of the bacteria private due to fears of bio terrorism. This is the first time that a new substance has been kept secret due to fears of terrorism in history. Until they find an antidote for the bacteria, it will be kept secret for safety purposes.

There are 7 forms of this bacteria, types A-G,type A is well known for demolishing wrinkles through injection of the face. There are antidotes for types A-G, but there is no antidote for type H, the new substance.
