Transcript of Contagious and Non-Contagious Diseases

Notes Non-Contagious diseases 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c Mutations Mutations are when a disease is faced with a problem, such as a vaccination to get rid of it, and the disease changes the makeup of its body to get around that roadblock. Another way a disease can mutate is if it infects the same person that is already infected with a different disease, and those diseases will mix, creating a different "breed" of disease. Mutations (Cont.) Contagious diseases, because of their anatomy, will mutate in a different way than a non-contagious disease will to the same problem. Contagious Diseases Contagious diseases are diseases that can be spread by contact and obtained through contact with something or someone. Ways it can spread are possibly a sneeze on your friend's book or not washing your hands. Even greetings, like handshaking, hugging or a high-five are all ways a contagious disease can spread. Many contagious diseases lurk in offices like this. Some Contagious Diseases Examples of contagious diseases are:
-STDs
-Air borne diseases like whooping cough, scarlet fever, measles, and bronchitis
-A virus or bacteria, like the flu, staph, west nile, and yellow fever.
-Insect-transmitted diseases, such as malaria, yellow fever, and west nile. What is a non-contagious disease? A non-contagious disease is also known as a non-communicable disease. NCD's are non-infectious, and non-transmissible. Some non-contagious diseases NCD's tend to be more severe, like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, osteoperosis, alzheimer's, heart disease, and fibromyalgia. Most of these diseases can be prevented by exercising and eating right, but some can't be prevented. Contagious Disease versus Non-Contagious Disease

Hypothesis Looking at the attributes of contagious and non-contagious diseases, I think the cause of the differences between contagious and non-contagious diseases is because of the way their anatomy is constructed and the mutations they have made. Contagious Diseases:
-bacteria
-virus
-fungi
-parasite
-diseases that can be spread by contact
-sneeze
-not washing your hands
-handshaking
-hugging
-high-five
-any disease you can obtain through contact with something or someone.
-STD's
-Air borne diseases like whooping cough, scarlet fever, measles, and bronchitis
-A virus or bacteria, like the flu, staph, west nile, and yellow fever.
-Insect-transmitted diseases, such as malaria, yellow fever, and west nile.

Non-Contagious Diseases:
-non-communicable disease
-NCD
-non-infectious
-non-transmissible
-slow and long
-or quick death
-Some have no known cure
-alzheimer’s
-cancer
-osteoporosis
-fibromyalgia
-heart disease
