Fancy Dress Outfitters Discusses The Top Scientific Reasons For A Zombie Apocalypse
The online fancy dress retailer, Fancy Dress Outfitters, discusses the top scientific reasons for a zombie apocalypse to actually happen.
Leicester (I-Newswire) October 19, 2012 - Fancy Dress Outfitters, an online retailer of fancy dress products, discusses the top scientific reasons that a zombie apocalypse could actually happen.
There are many different reasons for a zombie apocalypse that are portrayed through films, games and comic books. These reasons vary greatly and sometimes rely completely on magic for the reason that the dead are walking, but what are the scientific reasons that could lead to a modern day zombie apocalypse?
Parasites are a big concern when it comes to the zombie apocalypse. In nature there are several different ones that control their hosts and make them do whatever they want. A great example of this is Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, a fungus that forces ants to move to a high position, clamp with their jaw and then die. The fungus grows out of the head of the ant and spreads more spores, hoping to ensnare more ants from the nest nearby.
Neurotoxins are another possible reason for a zombie apocalypse. These slow body functions down so slow that the host can be pronounced dead, the poison from the Japanese blowfish, Fugu, does this. Hosts can then be brought back to consciousness through the use of alkaloids, which leave them in a trance-like state, able only to eat and shamble about the place.
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is caused by humans eating meat tainted with Mad Cow Disease. The disease causes them to hallucinate, twitch or even have seizures, find it hard to walk, lose coordination and rapidly develop a delirium. This is incredibly dangerous and while rare, a new untraceable strain of the disease could exist and infect millions before it is found.
Neurogenesis is the process of re-growing dead brain tissue through stem cell research. This would mean that patients that are declared brain dead could be saved, however they could also turn into zombies living off a basic need to eat. This would only result in the zombie apocalypse if the world needed to be revived from brain death, but is still highly plausible.
Nanobots are a relatively unheard of cause for the zombie apocalypse, however the science is there. Nanobots in the future will repair parts of a body, including their brain. These robots are programmed to repair each other and themselves, meaning that after death they will continue to grow. Their drive will be to spread to other hosts in order to survive, which is why zombies will want to attack and bite other living humans.
