well a lot of things I think in religions and writing and stories from a loong time ago show things that involve Vampires, Werewolves, etc. But i think that science could definatly take part in what we call Vampries, Werewovles, etc. I think some of the explinations for these folklores could be true but I don't exactly know but i think this article is interesting.

Are vampires the real deal? Is there now scientific evidence showing that vampires can and will exist no matter what? Astonishing. Clinical trials need to be done to fulfill the needs of every vampire enthusiast, I know I'm on board. Would it be stretch to say we need a 'find real vampires' kickstarter? Teenage girls, begin swooning! On a serious note, there is a vampiric disease called poryphoria, if you aren't familiar with the term, it is one every blood lusting appreciator should check out,
