Bath salts? Lovely soak or cannibalizer?
So rest assured, using bath salts (bath & body product) is generally made from Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) or fine sea salts (sodium chloride), and soaking in them will not make you a vicious cannibal. It will make your skin feel nice and possibly relax your muscles. It will not make you want to feast on your neighbour.
Be careful about the urban legends you might hear about this drug. Someone was telling me the modern day equivalent of the acid eating babysitter who tries to microwave the baby the other day, although she assured me that the video was on YouTube. (I didn't do a search...)
Worried about a zombie apocalypse? (Click on the link only if you have a strong stomach. I'm feeling really sick now!) This should make you feel slightly better. "...spokesman David Daigle recently emailed the Huffington Post stating, "CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombielike symptoms)."" (Check out this link to the Vancouver Sun.) As someone who is fully convinced that zombies walk amongst us based on the three almost car accidents I've had in the last year with other drivers who don't even react, this assurance has no effect on me!
