According The Zombie Survival Guide the virus that causes "zombification" is deadly toxic to all animals. To me this means that there was some substance produced by the virus or its host to survive, something contained in is protien coat or DNA/RNA helix, or a by-product of its replication in the frontal lobe that is not directly related to the infection of the virus (which causes a human to become a zombie). This substance that causes the toxicity of the flesh of zombies may be heat resistant and just getting the flesh "flame kissed" my leave enough of it to waste anyone eating it. I have to say though, if I was starving to death I would try to eat a live kangaroo before I just laid down to die. Too bad Betty Crocker doesn't have a section devoted to "Delacacies of the Dead".
