These "explanations" are themselves conjectures .There is no proof that they are true ..A better explanation of the vampire legend is based on the characteristic red lesions on the necks of victims of the Black Death plague .People could not explain the marks , so they reasoned they were bites of a vampire .Vlad the Impaler gave a image to the legend .

"probably" "could have been", "some scientists believe"... hardly rigorous science! But otherwise an interesting spin adding to the legends.
