'Dr. Germ' -- Is this the world's deadliest woman?
Rihab Taha earned the name Dr Germ from weapons inspectors
A DEADLY female scientist who has made enough biological weapons to kill everyone in the world twiceover may be one of the major reasons the US is pushing for war with Iraq.
Dr Rihab Taha is head of Iraq's germ warfare program and is the most dangerous woman in the world.
Known to UN weapons inspectors as Doctor Germ for her gruesome work, the US and its allies consider this female scientist to be one of the greatest threats since the end of the cold war -- a threat that must be dealt with at almost any cost.
The story of Dr Germ begins in 1979 when Taha travelled to England on a student visa to study plant toxins. Rihab Taha eventually earned a PhD from the University of East Anglia in Norwich where she studied biology intensely, focusing on infectious diseases.
