DISEASES:

Mrs. Snyder

March, 2009


What is a disease l.jpg

What is a disease?

  • Abnormal condition of an organism’s cells, body systems, or processes.

  • Evidence: specific symptoms and signs

  • They cause an immune response in complex organisms

    • This is the body’s attempt to rid itself of the disease and stay healthy.


How do diseases differ l.jpg

How do diseases differ?

  • The causes can be different

  • Pathogenscausesome diseases.

    • Biological causes

    • Often called microbes (microscopic)

    • Protists, bacteria, or viruses

    • Microbes can be:

      • carried by mosquitoes, flies, pigs, or other animals

        • Transmitted to humans

      • Found in water, soil, and sneezes

  • Why aren’t we sick all the time?

    • We will discuss that later


Other causes l.jpg

Other causes

  • Genetics

    • Inherited conditions - related to chromosomes

  • Biochemical or environmental factors

    • Second hand smoke

    • Air pollution

  • Individual organism

    • Problems or failure in normal functioning of an organ or organ system


Body s defense systems l.jpg

Body’s defense systems

  • Preventing microbes from entering the body - first lines of defense

    • Hairs lining mucus membranes

    • Skin

    • Acids in the stomach

  • White blood cells are second line of defense

  • Third line of defense: lymphocytes and leukocytes - white blood cells

  • Antibodies - immunities

    • natural or by vaccination


Managing non pathogenic diseases l.jpg

Managing Non Pathogenic Diseases

  • Repair the damaged system

    • Medicines

    • Surgery

    • Combination

  • Behavioral changes

    • Remove causative behaviors
