On October 13, 1972, a plane carrying 45 members of a Uruguayan rugby team crashed into the Andes mountains at an altitude of more than 12,000 feet.
Though 29 men lived through the initial impact, another 13 died from exposure and injury in the frozen 72 days it took for a rescue party to locate the stranded group. So how did the 16 eventual survivors keep themselves alive all that time? By eating their teammates.
If the next great zombie outbreak leads to societal collapse, food and water may instantly become scarce. In a matter of days, people across the planet may be forced to make new and difficult choices about what, and who to eat.
Think you’d never consider eating a pet or even a neighbor? Think again.
Just like the rugby cannibals of the 1970s, when sources of nutrition can’t be found they will be created. So unless you have a secured stock of food for at least six months, don’t be surprised when your stomach starts telling your head to fry up a member of your survival team for dinner.
And at that point, what’s the difference between us and the zombies?
