More Zombie Science

From an actual scientific paper submitted to the Journal of Ethnopharmocalogy

For many years students of Haitian society have suggested that there is an ethnopharmacological basis for the notorious zombies, the living dead of peasant folklore. The recent surfacing of three zombies, one of whom may represent the first potentially verifiable case, has focused scientific attention on the reported zombi drug.

And don't miss the related articles:
  • Toxicologic aspects of voodoo in Haiti.
  • Tetrodotoxin and the zombi phenomenon.

Seriously, somebody approved grants to fund these things.
