Zombie Apocalypse Science


History is full of stories of demons and other unearthly creatures coming into our world and wreaking havoc on society. But what does science have to say about zombies? Are these ferocious freaks plausible or scientifically accurate in any way? Should we be preparing for a zombie apocalypse? Well, it depends on what type of zombie we are talking about. Dying and coming back from the dead? Not so likely. But a virus that induces zombie-like qualities of rage and the incessant need to eat human flesh? Hypothetically…..yes. The main factor involved is finding a virus specific to the brain areas for these symptoms while leaving other areas intact. Neurons are some of the some of the longest cells and can transport molecules and proteins across the entire body. Many viruses such as rabies take advantage of take advantage of something called Retrograde Axonal Transport

  1. So is there a chance it can happen? I'm not prepared. 😰😰😨😨😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  2. Bath Salts create zombie like behavior. All the cases I heard about involve, not listening to anybody at all, shot them and they still attack, aggressive face eating and bodily harm to whoever is in their path. At least the one in Miami that one memorial weekend.

  3. @Tyran you dumb he clearly said it’s a virus dead people can’t get it but people that are alive can it makes sense

  4. I knew it!! I actually have debated with science teachers about this, i always told them that there is a possibility, but the fuckers didn't listen to me.

  5. scientist that works for the cdc went missing after saying he felt sick from work..He was an epidemiologist…It has begun!!!!

  6. I think if this were to happen it would by like a terrorist attack in where the virus is exposed in different parts of the world by terrorist. Though I’m guessing that’s its difficult to make a virus that specific (Idk tho I’m not a scientist, science ppl prove me wrong prove me right Idk)

  7. At 1:35, I don't understand the last word. It tells to your what? It sounds like fall/fault, but it doesn't sound right to the context.

  8. Could you give me full English Subtitle in this video ??? Please sent me back in under this comment. Thankyou

  9. Couldnt take this seriously when you presented a bacteriophage and talked about virus attacking human brain

  10. a Zombie apocalypse is only possible, if Million and millions of People are infected at the same time, because the People could easily kill or Isolate few Zombies. Special safety percautions will take place.

    Just think About all the sharp, heavy and good to grab Things around you including: Knives, guitars, (pistols), Baseball bats… And what About the Military?

    If it Comes hard on hard amurica could just bomb the Zombies with the viruses away.
    If ist necessary, ist Pretty easy to kill someone.

  11. Yo someone release this virus I’m bored of the same routine and I’m trying to get lit with zombies BO4 zombies in real life

  12. Not a virus. Probably a worm or a plague. A worm is too large for the body's immune system to quarantine but its small enough to go to the brain and inject the dna to make more of its species.

  13. In the last few years they have actually found that a person infected with rabies once symptoms start can now be treated by putting them into an induced coma. In the past once symptoms showed you were as good as dead but modern medical science has made it treat we can treat people u dear a medical induced coma. Yay for modern science.

  14. When we were 9, my English teacher showed my class a movie called 'World War Z' it's pretty old but all the zombies were running faster Usain Bolt (exaggeration) and we're DYING to BITE you, they even climb up buildings/walls by jumping on each other and its still traumatizing

  15. relatable to the tv series called "the cure" the virus can be mistaken for a cancer cure because first the old lady that has cancer got well but became a zombie like, I forgot the name of the girl who became immune… She is bitten by a zombie but survive.. then she became a cure or every people who survived got injected with her blood… they all survive the end

  16. im ready i was planning it whith my brother for hours cant say 5he whole thing tho cas you wouldnt know the layout of the town

  17. I think a crazy scientist is getting prepared to spread zombie virus and also he will be the only one to have it's vaccine.

  18. It is possible, but we will have to make a 67 digit number of just decibels just to find a number that isn’t a 0.

  19. According to me,the weapons for killing the zombies are a bigger threat to mankind,than the zombies itself..thats what we should worry about at present..😂😂

  20. Just avoid zombies. And they will most likely be fully decomposed in about a week. The only real dangerous is the smell. And even if they did not decompose like in the movies, their cognitive skills will decreased so they really couldn’t do much. BOOM. Science just saved your life

  21. If i were a mad bio scientist. I would create a rabies virus that spreads like the flu and cold virus but would take up to 6 weeks for symptoms to appear but they would be contagious for most of the time. Those not infected would fall victim to those infected. This is one of my greatest fears I know if I've thought of it someone else has. If they don't create this virus nature will. anytime a species over populates nature response accordingly.

  22. I know their is a worm that can take over prey mantises killing them in the process. At the same time taking control of their body what a parasite?

  23. if something like zombies would emerge I’m 100% sure that it would be contained quickly as they are quite clearly easy to be located, given being their reactions and probably abnormal mental characteristics. And I’m sure that they would be easy to kill not like in movies just like uninflected humans.
