I read a book that was full of myths about a year ago. Then I stumbled across the greatest myth ever. The diarrhea causing vampires. I can't remember a lot of the details or what country this took place in. I just remember laughing for a very long time. People were digging up the dead people in the cemetery, because they believed they were really diarrhea causing vampires. Does anyone know the exact myth?

  • Interests:I'm a scrub nurse, I have a rescued black lab and another puppy that's half black lab and half Chihuaha (sp?) - strange looking dog, but sweet. I became interested in EVP when my fiance passed. - I wrote about that somewhere else in my profile. (my real name's Connie)<br /><br />I like to swim, go to flea markets and antique malls - I am OBSESSED with anything from the 40's. Don't know why.<br /><br />I use poems, music lyrics, whatever, and make strangely beautiful, poignant 'pieces' out of paper, ripped up towels, glue, newspaper, jewelry, glitter, dirt, sand, anything I happen to see. Hard to describe, you'd just have to see them. That's my favorite thing to do, just create something out of nothing that makes people laugh or cry - brings them outta themselves for a while.

I'm a nurse.

That explains a lot...

Ok, that wasn't very nice.

Ofcourse alot of vampire "myths" can now medically be explained, but back in the days when lack of medical knowledge or know how was present, scientific explanations were replaced with pure panic. This type of myth could be explained as a disease called Pellagra

Here are some other vampire superstitions that might be of interest.
