Letter from Salvador E. Luria to the editor of The Boston Globe
Description:
In late 1981, U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig accused the Soviet Union of supplying trichothecene mycotoxins (poisonous compounds made by fungal molds that infect grain), popularly known as Yellow Rain, to the Communist regimes in Vietnam and Laos for use in counterinsurgency warfare. In this letter to the editor of the "Boston Globe," Luria provided a brief history of the international ban on biological weapons, and urged restraint on the part of American officials that alleged that Soviet violations of the ban were responsible for the occurrence of "yellow rain" in southeast Asia.
