Zombie Apocalypse or Bath Salts Crisis?

Bath Salts Assault Prompts Zombie Apocalypse Preparation  

In a bizarre twist of events, cases of “zombie” incidents have been popping up across the United States and beyond, leaving thousands concerned about preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

Those who subscribe the zombie apocalypse theory believe that a series of grusome events are a sign of more to come.

First came Miami: the case of a naked man eating most of another man’s face.

Then Texas: a mother accused of killing her newborn, eating part of his brain and biting off three of his toes.

Then Maryland, a college student telling police he killed a man, then ate his heart and part of his brain.

While the stories will make your stomach churn, the zombie apocalypse sensation has captivated the attention of the media and the country.

But these zombie cases aren’t like the ones you see in the movies, but rather people caught up in gruesome crimes. The naked man shot and killed after refusing to listen to police as he ate another man’s face was 31-year-old Rudy Eugene.

The Dangers of Bath Salts

Eugene had taken bath salts, which contain amphetamine-like chemicals and are sold as “cocaine substitutes” or “synthetic LSD.” Its effects include paranoia, hallucinations, convulsions and psychotic episodes.

According to ABC News, bath salts remain legal in some states, although many others have taken steps to ban the substances.

A former bath salts user told ABC that he would hallucinate about being in mental hospitals when he took the drug and called it, “the darkest, evilest thing imaginable.” While the man said he never felt the urge to eat someone else’s flesh, he admitted bath salts can make a person feel invincible and not feel any pain.

Authorities nationwide are now viewing bath salts as an increasing health and safety concern.
