Condensed Notes - Understanding Ourselves.

Healthy Disorders can be caused in various ways -

Vitamin deficiency - get scurvy if you don't get enough Vit C!

Mineral deficiency - lack of iron in diet can led to anaemia.

Genetic Inheritance - red-green colour blindness and haemophillia

Body Disorders -  caused by body cells not working properly - diabetes and cancer

Cancer is caused by body cells growing out of control -

1). Benign - this type of tumour grows until there is no more room - isn't particularly dangerous.

2). Malignant -  this is where the tumour grows an spread to other parts of the body - dangerous and can be fatal!
