Science ponders 'zombie attack' from BBC News reports that if zombies existed, an attack by them could wipe out Planet Earth - a big IF.
Perhaps this is why the Canadian health system is allegedly on the ropes - research is being diverted into zombie research rather than more immediate threats to the population. Perhaps this is Exhibit A on why we don't want to adopt that model for US health care.
That is the conclusion of a mathematical exercise carried out by researchers in Canada.
They say only frequent counter-attacks with increasing force would eradicate the fictional creatures.
The scientific paper is published in a book - Infectious Diseases Modelling Research Progress.
