Zombies could wipe us all out!

According to new scientific research, an attack of Zombies could wipe out civilisation unless dealt with aggressively and fast.

These conclusions are the result of a mathematical excercise carried out by researchers at the University's of Ottawa and Carleton and shows that in many respects a Zombie outbreak would resemble a lethal rapidly spreading infection.

Unless the outbreak was met with frequent counter-attacks of increasing force, humanity would be quickly overwhelmed.

Even more worrying is the researchers chose the classic slow shuffling Zombies as opponents as in "Dawn of the Dead" rather than the fast moving modern day Zombie you see in films like "I am Legend"

The scientific paper is due to be published in the book "Infectious Diseases Modelling Research Progress", you can read the full story over at the BBC News
