why study microbiology
Why Study Microbiology?
  • The majority of serious diseases in humans (especially those of early childhood) are due to microbial infections
  • 1900, the average life expectancy in the United States was 40 years of age
  • 2000, 80 years, largely due to the near eradication of most serious early childhood diseases
  • This trend is seen in the gap between developed and developing countries in terms of causes of death (mortality)
effects
Effects
  • Basic medical care, antibiotics, childhood vaccination, and increased sanitation
  • Infectious disease causes a very low proportion of deaths in developed (high technology)  countries, while it is the major cause of deaths in developing (low technology) countries
effects19
Effects
  • In developed countries, the causes of death are primarily those associated with longer life (cancer, cardiovascular disease) and accidents/stupidity (miscellaneous). 
  • In developing countries, people typically do not survive infectious or parasitic disease long enough to develop these diseases associated with advanced age.
