In Europe, the term “vampire” refers to a folktale about dead people who come back to life and live off of human blood. They may occasionally be exhilarating as well, but over time in European culture, they turn into horror stories.
Where the Myths began
Early in the 18th century, vampires became the subject of the first recognized scientific study. It all began with an incident that actually happened in 1725 to a peasant from Serbia named Peter Plogojewitz. The information from 1725 indicates that this individual passed away at the age of 62 and was buried underground in accordance with customary local practice.
However, a peculiar illness killed a large number of villagers in the community two months later. The occurrence persisted for nine days. The peculiarity is that Peter had visited the same individuals a few days before his passing.

Peter’s widow said that she had a dream about her late husband knocking on the door and asking her to bring him a pair of shoes when she first started to accept the narrative. She suddenly went into a panic. She left the village the very following morning.
Following the tragedy, the villagers made the choice to remove Peter’s coffin’s lid. It was done by Serbian army personnel, and it was amazing that Peter’s body was still there and hadn’t started to rust or decompose. His skin was white, and there was a crimson stain that appeared to be dried blood on his lips. His fingernails, legs, and hair even appeared to have grown longer.
The locals were so terrified that they incinerated the body while continuing to spread the rumors, some of which were even made into terrifying tales. The troops who took part in the grave digging in particular told their leaders the truth when they got back to their battalions. Later, this episode was reported in a number of publications all over the world.
Since then, people have become more and more intrigued by tales of vampires.
A compilation of tales containing all the tales and real-life incidents he had gathered and heard about the vampire phenomena was published in 1776 by a French author by the name of Antoine Augustine Calmet.
After then, a number of bizarre vampire-related events started to arise, prompting scientists to take action.
Because the hemoglobin in their blood will break down under the influence of UV rays when exposed to light, people with this condition frequently feel afraid of it and prefer to stay in the dark.
Thanks to genetic engineering, porphyria may now be treated more readily. But a long time ago, it was one of the most dreaded human illnesses. When the problem worsens, the patient must deal with hormonal imbalances that cause long, curly fingernails and legs, body-wide hair growth, and regrowth of the skin around the lips and gums. The skin gets more tightly stretched and thinner, exposing the teeth like wolf fangs.
The patient is also prone to oral bleeding due to the severity of the injury to the skin and gums. Many people’s mental images of bloodsucking vampires are also a result of this illness.
