REAL LIFE ZOMBIES

While brainstorming for a future zombie apocalypse story, I searched for ways to make my zombies seem scientifically plausible. The zombie condition is often depicted as being the product of a virus, a curse, or something else that cannot be explained by science. However, what if it does not require a virus to become a zombie? As it turns out, there are many forms of parasites and fungus that take over the bodies of insects and turns them into zombie-like creatures. Also, what if there were versions of these parasites/fungus that can infect humans? I will be tinkering with this idea as I continue to brainstorm. I will keep you updated on any further developments.
