Most of us believe that the idea of zombies should be limited to the horror area of our favorite movie providers. However, such an idea is much closer to reality than many of us may think.
Now, it is unlikely to happen in the dramatic, explosive manner typically depicted in films. However, there is great potential for such an outbreak – especially if a virus suddenly mutates and causes what we can only call a "zombie infection". In fact, an outbreak of this kind could lead to a desperate situation. See also: Top 10 Zombie Apocalypse Conspiracy Theories they discovered details of a real US military plan to fight a zombie outbreak. Formulations such as "isolating the threat" and "evil magical zombies" were used regularly.
With the documents suddenly in the spotlight, the military had to respond. They stated that the word "zombies" should not be taken seriously. It was simply used to highlight one or the other goal. They insisted that the program could be easily adapted to multiple situations. This would also avoid a "diplomatic incident". [1
This certainly makes sense, especially from the perspective of diplomatic external relations. However, many in conspiracy circles were not convinced. Instead, they insisted that the obvious information leak was just that. Very often the truth is somewhere in the middle of two opposite points of view. However, if we look at a few other items on this list, it's easy to see why the military might have such a planned response.
9 The disturbing claims of Peter Cummings
Peter Cummings, a scientist at Boston University, states that several diseases and conditions exist that could lead to someone being considered a zombie. A "zombie apocalypse" might even appear possible if an outbreak of these conditions spreads and mutates rapidly.
According to Cummings, the key to understanding the potential of these states to create zombie features was to examine the frontal lobe shutdown of the brain. He claimed that this returns the mind to its original survival instincts, which is a zombie-like state.
Even more interesting – and more troubling – are some cases from history. For example, several people already suffered from such a disease during the outbreak of the Spanish flu in 1918. These people had lethargic encephalitis associated with the flu virus. 
They fell into a stupor and eventually became catatonic. Any "stimulation" of another person during this time, however, made these patients "angry". For what it's worth, Cummings works in an advisory capacity for the Zombie Research Society, "an organization dedicated to the historical, cultural, and scientific study of the living dead."
8 A virus like rabies could mutate and create zombies!
When most people think of zombies, they conjure up images of the dead who rose from their graves. In 2010, however, Samita Andreansky from the University of Miami claimed otherwise.
She explained that the ascending dead were an unlikely scenario, but the mutation of a rabies virus was not. In addition, she warned that this mutant strain could spread around the world and cause a condition that is almost identical to the typical view of a zombie.
If such a virus caught the world's population, the prospects for mankind would be poor. This type of virus could spread quickly and would likely wipe out humanity. 
Maybe we should take such a scenario seriously. For example, what if an individual or group of people undertakes to mutate such a virus for the so-called "greater good" of the planet?
7 Many tribes have ancient traditions of zombies
Of course, many of the rituals, traditions and legends of zombies come from the indigenous peoples of Africa and their voodoo legends. In addition, these practices go back to ancient times. According to the creation stories and mythologies of the regions, Voodoo came "from the gods".
With the slave trade, these traditions and practices made the trip to many parts of America. This was particularly true in the southern regions of the United States, particularly in the state of Louisiana. 
Recently Haiti has become one of the epicentres of modern cases of "zombies". ”In fact, the term voodoo permeates the mindset of the population. In Haiti, however, it is usually referred to as "hoodoo".
6 Wade Davis claimed to have "revealed" the secret of creating zombies.
Without a doubt one of the most controversial claims of real zombies came from Harvard University's Wade Davis. Davis traveled to Haiti and stayed there in the early 1980s. He claimed to have "uncovered the secrets," which is exactly what makes people zombies.
Even more intriguing was Davis' claim that in ancient times criminals were turned into zombies to stop their wayward behavior. This also acted as a brutal deterrent to others, as it was like a death penalty.
Davis claimed to have gained this knowledge by studying the region's hoodoo priests and eventually gaining their trust. Ultimately, he explained that the creation of zombies was accomplished through a mixture of secret natural toxins. 
Many people rejected his results. Others believed that such discoveries, if true, would be of great interest to secret military projects. However, there is no evidence that the military has ever investigated Davis' claims.
5 "People have been recalled from the dead" In Haiti
the researcher Zora Neale Hurston has carried out some of the most extensive studies on zombies in Haiti. Almost half a century before Davis, Hurston claimed that "people were recalled from the dead". She was also said to have seen real “zombies in Haiti”.
In a fascinating report, Hurston says that she was invited to study hoodoo rituals up close. Most people were not granted such access. A hoodoo priest gave permission for the unique opportunity, and Hurston eventually performed several rituals himself.
The report in her 1938 book, Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica however, really grabbed people's attention. Hurston claimed to have witnessed the resurrection of a dead woman, Felicia Felix mentor. This zombie had an "empty face with dead eyes" and was a "terrible sight". 
4 Zombies of the Wildlife
There are many examples of zombies in the animal world. This is a problem for people who are watching the rumble of the conspiracy field. The main concern is that these natural methods are replicated in a scientific laboratory and used against the general population. Such concerns are easy to understand.
For example, many natural zombies arise when a parasite enters an animal's nervous system via the food chain. The parasite takes over the movements of the animal. This is mostly an attempt to bring the animal to the public and in full view of its natural predators. If the parasite is successful, it passes over to the predator in the same way as it entered the originally infected host.
Even some fungi "attract" and "target and infect" certain insects that feed on the fungi. The fungal cells then slowly take over the insect cells and ultimately all of their movements. A mushroom appears to target carpenter ants. According to Penn State's David Hughes, this turns the animals into a "mushroom in ant clothes!"
Stephen Kane, an associate professor at the University of California at Riverside, certainly has a unique theory about why aliens have not visited Earth. In 2014, he claimed that space travel had stranded such astronauts as zombies on an unknown planet in the past.
Kane used a formula similar to the Zombie Drake equation. He looked at how many epidemics had struck humanity over the centuries. From this he suspected that the same thing had probably happened in space in the past. 
It was Kane's belief that our solar system should be full of life. However, germs, bacteria, and viruses have probably started the journey with these ancient space travelers and probably created zombies of the unknown planet population – just like the ancient space explorers themselves.
It is certainly a terrifying prospect – especially if humans ever venture out over the moon or even out to Mars. If these potential space researchers returned from such a trip, could they bring back something as deadly as a "zombie virus" – one that could kill all life on our planet?
2 If it happened it would happen Quick!
One thing is certain: if such a zombie virus spread, it would do it quickly. In addition, it would infect a large part of the world's population at the same time. Maybe we just have to look at how quickly flu viruses cross the world to appreciate this.
Let us imagine that a “zombie bug” has entered the general population. It would probably completely surprise the world's scientists and medical experts and stand on their backs. Especially if such a virus was deliberately triggered by an extremist. 
If such an unlikely scenario occurred, it could really lead to a desperate situation for humanity – so bad that we just couldn't recover. If we look at the idea of zombies in these terms, the prospect doesn't seem so ridiculous, no matter how unlikely it is.
1 Zombie drugs and mind control
Some researchers insist that the intelligence community tries to turn people into zombies through the use of drugs and mind control. Of course, most people mock such claims and reject them. And they could be right to do so. After all, there is little evidence that such unusual actions take place behind closed doors.
But what if such a conspiracy would unfold discreetly under the collective nose of humanity? 
Certainly the evidence would be difficult, if not impossible to obtain. Obviously, it would be in the best interests of those who monitor such a conspiracy to keep it secret. They would most likely do so by calling such claims “crazy”. This is similar to many UFO witnesses. It is certainly food for thought.
