i don't see how this could affect the human race and if it could there would be something about it on the news and the army would have some kind of containment for this

If you think about it Alzheimer's does the same thing that the infection on "The Walking Dead" the only difference is it doesn't cause the person to eat another person. Just think if Alzheimer's was combine with rabies it could possibly cause people to eat people.

I got this interesting news about zombie ants from my well-read friend, Lim. It sounds more like some science fiction that fungus can control an insect's brain.


Have a restful Sunday folks.

"All four known fungi species live in Brazil's Atlantic rain forest"

Interesting, maybe they meant cordyceps' species? Yet, they are found even here in Northern Europe...

@Andrew Shaw There are times when going from unknown to known that things are not known before they become known and important. Considering Ophiocordyceps, check out the novel The Girl With All the Gifts.
