The True Story of the Zombie Apocalypse

Many people tried to understand what made the dead walk. It seemed few had any true science behind their unfounded theories. The radio was full of these people extolling one supposed scientific cause after another. Radiation from outer space, pollutants, cell phones, it seemed every possible influence was explored to some extent. But no one looked at evolution.
I don't mean our evolution. Our lifespan is too long for us to observe this theory in living humans. Although we understand natural selection from the fossil records, the easiest way to see evolution is through bacteria. Their short lives allow us a clear view of how a life form can adapt to meet the demands of a changing environment.
