Water Borne Disease

Air
How you can get sick from air;
When sick people cough or sneeze and infect the air, you can get sick when you breathe it in.
Two examples of diseases spread this way;
Chicken pox
Common cold
Objects
Germs that infect the air can also live on things like doorknobs and desks, you can get sick if you touch an infected desk.
Food
If you eat contaminated food that has a virus or bacteria, you can possibly get Cholera or Salmonella.
Dirty hands from people who dont wash them after the bathroom, if you touch their hands, their germs could infect you.
Examples of diseases spread this way are; Viral Meningitis, and Salmonella.
Someones elses Blood
If someone has a cut and their blood gets on you and infects you, you could get Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C.
More objects that can infect you is;
Keyboards
pencils
computer mouse
headphones
dishes
Sliva
If you kiss someone who is sick, you are able to get Glandular fever or Hepatitis B.
This is the Hepatitis B bacteria.
This is the Hepatitis
C disease.
This is a picture of someone who has the Glandular Fever disease.
Glandular Fever is a type of viral infection.
It is caused by the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). It is one of the most common viruses that can affect humans. Most EBV infections occur during early childhood. They usually produce few or no symptoms. Afterwards, the virus will remain in the body for life, lying dormant in a number of throat and blood cells.
Epstein-Barr Virus is a common human virus that causes infectious mononucleosis and plays a role in the emergence of two rare forms of cancer: Burkitt's lymphoma, and nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
This is the Epstein-Barr Virus disease.
Viral Meningitis is is inflammation
of the leptomeninges as a manifestation
of central nervous system (CNS) infection.
Viral
names the cuasative agent and, the term
meningitis
implies lack of parenchymal and spinal cord involvement.
Skin and lips
If you touch or get too close to some one who is sick then you can possibly get;
Cold Sores, Head Lice, or Warts.
Animals
If you are bitten by a dog or animal that is carrying the disease then you could possibly get;
Cat-Scratch disease
Rabies
Insects
If you are bitten by a bug that is carrying a disease, like a mosquito or bed bugs etc.,,,
you could get;
Malaria
Ross River Virus infection
Insects
Soil or Dirty Things
If you step on or touch something rusty or dirty that breaks your skin, like a nail,
You could catch Amoebic Meningitis or Tetanus.
To be healthy, stay away from these things and take good care of your body.
Waterborne
diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms that most commonly are transmitted in contaminated fresh water. Infection commonly results during bathing, washing, drinking, in the preparation of food, or the consumption of food thus infected.
The term disease broadly refers to any condition that impairs normal function, and is therefore associated with dysfunction of normal homeostasis. Commonly, the term disease is used to refer specifically to infectious diseases, which are clinically evident diseases that result from the presence of pathogenic microbial agents, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, multicellular organisms, and aberrant proteins known as prions.
