Anthrax is a rare bacterial disease that enters the body through spores. A quote from the CDC states "This is a disease caused by gram positive". Gram-positive bacteria is a bacteria that gives a positive result in the Gram stain test. Gram-positive bacteria take up the crystal violet stain used in the test, and then appear to be purple-colored when seen through a microscope. Anthrax can spread when people touch contaminated animal products like wool, bone, hair and hide. The infection occurs when the bacteria enters a cut or scratch in the skin. Some anthrax infections occur when people breathe in the spores of the bacteria.
