  • Disease
    • Microbes that cause infectious disease
      • Virus
      • Bacteria
      • Fungi
    • Transmission
      • Food & drink
      • Droplets
        • Breathing
        • Talking
        • Sneezing & coughing
      • Direct contact
      • Breaks in skin
    • White Blood Cells (WBCs)
      • engulf or ingest
      • Produce antibodies
        • Antibodies are specific to the pathogen
      • Produce anti-toxins
    • How to treat disease
      • Painkillers treat the symptoms of the disease
        • No effect on the pathogen
      • Antibiotics destroy the disease
        • DO NOT work on viruses
    • Immunity
      • Vaccination
        • Injected with inactive/dead pathogen to stimulate WBCs to create antibodies to destroy the antigens
        • Produce antibodies more rapidly
