Is clostridium tetani considered armed or dangerous?
Clostridium tetani, the bacterial pathogen that causes tetanus (lock jaw) is arguably armed but is definitely dangerous. The toxin excreted by this bacterium causes serious illness and death in humans, but it is arguable whether that toxin can be considered an intentional weapon, since it serves the bacteria no purpose to kill its host.

Answer . \nThis a great website with information about Clostridium Tetani - http://www.lcusd.net/lchs/mewoldsen/tetanus.htm\n. \nSome of the main points include: They can… multiply and produce a toxin that effects the nerves and controls the activity of muscles. Lockjaw occurs and is followed by general rigidity of the body, then muscle spasms occur throughout the body. Finally, death is caused by interference with muscles required for breathing.\n. \nA much safer route would be to just get vaccinated. Alot of states offer free shots, so call around and find out where they are near you.
