Infectious and NonInfectious Diseases
(What are they, how are they
caused, how are they treated
and how can we prevent
Pathogens (infectious)
 Organisms that cause
 Bacteria
 Viruses
 Fungi
 Protozoan
 Parasites
Bacteria vs. Viruses
 Simple, single celled
 Air, soil, food, and in
plants and animals
 Most are not disease
 The ones that do,
enter cells and
damage them with
 Can be cured by
 Smallest
 100x smaller than
 Multiple when
living in cells
 Cannot be cured
by medicine, only
reduces the
How are they spread?
 Contact with an infected person
 Contact with contaminated
 Contact with animal
 Contact with environment
How does the body fight
them off?
 The immune system
 Phagocytes (white blood cells: eat up
foreign cells)
 Inflammation = the bodies response
 defenses Skin, sweat, hair, mucous membranes,
Immune System: What is it
and How does it work?
 Lymphatic system
 Lymphocytes B and T cells (white
blood cells)
 Fights off infection
 Produce antibodies
 Vaccines (immunization schedule)
Stages of Diseases
 1. Incubation (entry to when you feel
 2. Prodomal (first symptoms)
 3. Acute (most severe)
 4. Recovery (start feeling better)
 5. Convalescence (end of sickness
and feeling better)
 Over the counter medicine

 Surgery
 medication
 Types of Cancer:

breast, reproductive,
leukemia/lymphoma, etc
 What causes cancer?
 Carciogens: being exposed to
cancer causing agents
Treating and Preventing
 Prevention:
Avoid tobacco and alcohol
Protect yourself from the sun (spf)
Healthy diet and exercise
Avoid unnecessary x-rays and radiation
Regular check-ups
 Treatment:
 radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy
Diabetes (type I and type II)
 A disease in which the body’s ability
to use blood sugar (glucose-energy)
is impaired
 Insulin a hormone produced by the pancreas
that stimulates body cells to take up
and use blood sugar
Type I
 Insulin dependant
 More serious
 Produces little or no insulin
 Glucose levels remain high
 Appears during childhood
Type II
 Produce enough insulin, but their body cells do
not respond normally to insulin
 Occurs later in life
 Symptoms:

nausea, hunger, irritability, tired, itching, blurred
vision, and numbness in hands and feet.
