Diet and exercise
· A healthy diet has the right balance of food types

· Minerals ions and vitamins are needed to keep

· Two types of cholesterol ­ need good
cholesterol for cell membranes and make vital
· Small number of population inherit bad
cholesterol ­ lead to heat disease
· Food rich in saturated fats can also increase
blood cholesterol levels
· By exercising regularly a person can increase

· Pathogens cause infectious diseases

· When bacteria or viruses enter body reproduce rapidly -
make us feel ill by producing toxins (poisons)
· Viruses much smaller than bacteria and reproduce inside
cells ­ damage cells and make us ill
· Before bacteria and viruses were discovered, doctors
(Semmelweiss) realised tat infection could be transferred
from person to person in hospital
· Semmelweiss had staff wash hands in between treaty
patients ­ HOWEVER other doctors didn't take him seriously
