A string of recent flesh-eating events have prompted some to believe that this is the beginning of a "Zombie Apocalypse."
Here are the facts and it doesn't help that it's 2012, either!
First, there was the face-eater in Miami, then a man in Maryland eating parts of his housemate's brain and then there was the porn-star who murdered someone, ate his flesh and also mailed out body parts.
If that wasn't enough, Gawker reported a "mysterious rash" breakout at a high school in Hollywood and other parts of Florida - disease control teams can't explain.
Before you scoff at the existence of Zombies, a newfound fungus in the Brazilian rain forest can take over an ant's brain, move it's body to a good location for growth, and then kill the insect.
However, before you lock your doors and stay at home, do note the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states it does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms)," wrote agency spokesman David Daigle in an email to The Huffington Post.
