Zombies are reanimated organisms that have lost rudimentary thought and reasoning skills. They are incredibly hostile and lack an immune system. New evidence shows that the brain is independent of oxygen and other means of nutrition, thus enabling zombies to live in vacuums. It is not known if it is required for them to eat.
The zombie disease is a whole new type of illness. A common misconception is that it is a virus. This is false. The zombie disease infects brain cells and breaks them down. Afterwards, the cells are remade and reformed. The brain has lost several skills and all of the memory of the host.
It is transferred to a host via fluidic contact. Usually, zombies are aggressive and will try to eat other people. Zombie bites are a common way to get the disease. However, other contact, such as contact with an open wound, injesting small amounts of infected tissue (high amounts result in permanent death), and sexual contact.
