We all know what zombies are, from all kinds of movies and shows that try to show what a zombie really looks like and what a zombie apocalypse looks like. Have you ever wondered what a zombie outbreak could really look like? Research shows that zombies could exist or be created because viruses, bacterial infections and fungi and many other things, show symptoms of possible zombie behavior. Humans can get infected by Fungi. Fungi exist in most of the world’s forests. Fungi, trees and other plants have a symbiotic relationship exchanging nutrients. Studies show that chemical signals can be transmitted from one plant to another via fungi. Which means that fungi filaments could perform both vascular and neural functions within a corpse.

A dead host came from a drawback to an advantage, becoming a mobile platform for spore distribution. Zombie hunger drive may have originated from the spores distribution method. The development refinement of the fungal neural system, allowing for zombies to be more coordinated and to run at a full speed. This behavior may seem unlikely, in the animal world. Some species of parasitic wasps are able to reprogram behavioral patterns of their hosts (bees, and ants) creating new behaviors beneficial to the wasps and the detrimental of the host. While the host isn’t dead, this demonstrates that complex chemical overrides can evolve in nature. Another cause to a zombie outbreak would be viruses. A virus can put people into violent fits of rage. For a zombie outbreak the virus would probably be man-made. But certain viruses could start a zombie outbreak. In the movie 28 Days Later there was virus called, “The Real Rage Virus”. In the movie, it was a virus that turned humans into killing machines. In real life, we also have a series of brain disorders that do the same thing. But they were never contagious. Then, the Mad Cow Disease came along. It attacks cow’s spinal cord and brain, turning it into a stumbling, mindless attack cow. It can result to zombies; when the disease gets in a human, they call it Creutzfeldt-Jakob
