The Daily Caller’s inquiry to the CDC about why it omitted parasites from its denial, and about the possibility of the cannibals having been infected by the Toxoplasma, however, was met with silence.

It is transmitted by saliva I just read some report (closed the window) that these disease can start in the mouth. I don't know, seems sketchy to me.
I mean if it were entirely true wouldn't you like (sorry for graphics) not be able to perform oral sex with the risk of catching it? or share drinks?
I mean it has to be really rare, but it struck me that it was in his SON'S mouth, and he had to SHOOT him. I don't think any father wants to shoot his son. I don't know, I guess I'm trying to say that perhaps whatever is going on with the Miami cases was also present here. But its farfetched at best. But I still think this case smells funny.
According to an officer's safety bulletin, "While at the holding cell, DeLeon banged his head repeatedly inside the holding cell. DeLeon growled at officers in the booking area like a rabid dog. DeLeon attempted to bite Officer Ruiz's hand off." Read more: www.wsvn.com...
The term (zombie) is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli. "
"Several decades later, Wade Davis, a Harvard ethnobotanist, presented a pharmacological case for zombies in two books, The Serpent and the Rainbow (1985) and Passage of Darkness: The Ethnobiology of the Haitian Zombie (1988). Davis traveled to Haiti in 1982 and, as a result of his investigations, claimed that a living person can be turned into a zombie by two special powders being introduced into the blood stream (usually via a wound). The first, coup de poudre (French: "powder strike"), includes tetrodotoxin (TTX), a powerful and frequently fatal neurotoxin found in the flesh of the pufferfish (order Tetraodontidae). The second powder consists of dissociative drugs such as datura. Together, these powders were said to induce a death-like state in which the will of the victim would be entirely subjected to that of the bokor. Davis also popularized the story of Clairvius Narcisse, who was claimed to have succumbed to this practice."
