The symbol used today as the biohazard sign is in fact a Japanese family crest or "mon." It can be found on page 195 of the book "Japanese Design Motifs: 4,260 Illustrations of Japanese Crests" translated by Fumie Adachi and published by Dover.
Here is more information on the creator but it doesn't mention the Japanese Connection:

I also like the religious emblem for atheists that veterans can choose to have displayed on their graves if they so choose.
It looks like "Atomic Man" or something.

I think there's a 12-year-old nerd trying desperately to escape out of most grown men. Embrace it.
