GrowthBook - 2014
Corn is America's grain and the very stuff of life. Now, scientists have created a genetically modified strain that repels all pests. It also unknowingly contains the DNA of a rare species of fungus that is invasive, virulently infectious, and very deadly. First, the fungus eats through your skin. Then, growths appear on your body, sprouting like hideously malignant mushrooms. Finally, the skin cracks and splits, releasing countless spores into the air. First you die, but the worst is still to come, the fungus uses your body. To kill. In a desperate attempt to check the invasion, millions of acres of cornfields have been burned down. But the epidemic has a relentless life of its own, and it will not be stopped.
