Top 5 Reason Zombies eat Flesh

They are many unknown mysteries in the Universe such as: is there life on far, far away planets, do ghost really exist, is there really a Devil who wears Prada and my favorite why on earth do Zombies eat humans especially "brains".  Just in time for Halloween we will dissect the top five reasons why or flesh eating friends have such a distinctive appetite.  Now if by some random chance Zombies begin to roam the earth, I hope this list comes in handy.

A Zombie is typically a reanimated corpse, or a human being who is being controlled by someone else by use of magic. More recent stories have used a pandemic illness to explain them. Stories of zombies originated in the West African spiritual belief system of voodoo, which told of the people being controlled as laborers by a powerful wizard.

Top 10 Reasons Zombies eat Human Flesh

#5.  If a Zombie outbreak ever occurs it could be from tainted meat that can causes mad cow disease/ salmonella and campylobacter or by the toxoplasma gondii parasite which lives primary in cats or many warm blooded animals such as birds and rats. If by chance our natural food pyramid is comprised by mother nature to create the Devil's henchmen then there's no other choice but to eat us human. Plus if the infections starts in animals and is spread by them, the only non-tainted food supply will be us.

#4. Adults Are Almost 25 Pounds Heavier than 40 Years Ago, says CDC. Americans of all ages are "dramatically" heavier and slightly taller than they were back then, according to the CDC. "On average, both men and women gained more than 24 pounds between the early 1960s and 2002," says the CDC in its report, Mean Body Weight, Height, and Body Mass Index, United States 1960-2002.  Bigger and taller Americans translate to not being able to easily escape their dinner partners. Bigger and taller also means larger servings for the undead.

#3. About two-thirds of your brain is composed of fats. But not just any kind. Your brain cells require very specialized fats – the same ones that built the brains of your prehistoric ancestors and enabled them to learn and evolve at such a fast rate. These same fats are even now being incorporated into the very structure of your brain.

Myelin, the protective sheath that covers communicating neurons, is composed of 30% protein and 70% fat. One of the most common fatty acids in myelin is oleic acid, which is also the most abundant fatty acid in human milk and in our diet. 

Since Zombies, are rotten corpse with very limited brain functions, by consuming the human brain it looks like Zombies uses these fats as raw materials to assemble special types of fat it incorporates into its cell membranes. As a Zombie eats you alive the fat and protein passing through the cell's membrane into its cell's interior are oxygen, glucose (blood sugar), and the micronutrients the cell needs to function hence keeping the Zombie lusting for more.

#2.  Zombies are usually in very bad shape, mangled legs arms, missing limbs and extreme bite marks.  These severe wounds tend to cause an ungodly amount of blood lost.  So to replenish their blood lost, Zombies need to eat fresh humans at an constant rate so they do not dry up and rot. 

For example; the human body cannot survive without water or liquids. Water consumption helps the body breathe, because it moistens the lungs. Lung functions can use up to a pint of water every day, decreasing the body's moisture through exhalation. When that liquid isn't replaced, it makes it difficult to breathe. People who don't drink enough fluids can also gain excess body fat, have poor muscle tone and a decreased ability to digest food. 

#1. Zombies eat human flesh because it probably taste like chicken or maybe pork. Human flesh has connective tissue that is very high in adipose or fat, when it subjected to flame it has a very pungent odor similar to burning bacon. However, the only documented account of the taste of cooked human flesh found that the taste is closer to veal(and who does not like veal).   Most humans before they where unfortunately converted to the undead where meat eaters/lovers and everyone eats/likes chickens so from the looks of it, old habits die hard.

First of all, fix your spelling. Anyway, zombies do not need blood to survive

Ok, most of these reasons are fucking dumb..... The reasons why zombies eat brains and flesh, is because since their brain is dead or decomposed, they are at the basic state, in which they only reproduce and eat food. That's why they will eat us cause they need to eat food to survive just like us.

How would you know why a zombie eats humans? They are half dead so they obviously wouldnt have the strenght to bite through a body. Have you ever come in contact with a Zombie? No. These Zombie films give off the wrong impresion.
