Zombies Among Us?

Ready for zombies!

No, I am not referring to motorists who demonstrate an amazing lack of brain activity while behind the wheel, or your typical fast-food employee –  rather, I wish to discuss recent occurrences which, according to the media, resemble zombie attacks.  I’m not talking about classic tales of Vodou zombification such as with Clairvius Narcisse of Haiti (case study of author Wade Davis in his 1985 book, “Serpent and the Rainbow”).  Rather, these are reports of people going crazy, ripping off their clothes, and attacking someone while eating their skin.  Below are some relevant articles (my apologies for mainly citing a single source – I usually use a minimum of three):

Authorities are blaming a new designer drug called Bath Salts (which causes increased heart rate, agitation, paranoia, hallucinations, chest pain, and suicidality) as the culprit behind the attackers’ odd behavior, but others claim that it is an outbreak of an airborne form of mutated rabies or a variant of Necrotizing Fasciitis (flesh eating bacteria).  Whatever the case may be, the CDC has posted a bulletin to advise people what to do should a zombie invasion – or any other more realistic disaster – occur (http://blogs.cdc.gov/publichealthmatters/2011/05/preparedness-101-zombie-apocalypse).  Tongue-and-cheek though it may be, this article does offer good survival advice.

The reason I posted this blog is because I want to keep my finger on the pulse of this issue.  If you hear of any new occurrences I would very much appreciate you sending me a message with details.  I have never believed in zombies (as in animated corpses), but do believe in diseases driving people mad and attacking each other (like in “The Crazies” and “28 Days Later”).  Thank you for keeping me in the loop!
