4 In this lesson, you will learn to identify the two main types of disease.recognize four common disease-causing organisms.describe how germs spread.
5 Analyzing a GraphicCreate a concept map that shows how germs can be spread. Use this diagram as a guide.Germs
6 What Is a Disease?The science of fighting disease has come along way in the past hundred years.disease A condition that affects the proper functioning of the body or mind
7 The two basic categories of diseases are: Communicable diseases Types of DiseasesThe two basic categories of diseases are:Communicable diseasesNoncommunicable diseaseA cold is an example of a communicable disease.Diabetes and cancer are two noncommunicable diseases.communicable diseases Diseases that can be spreadnoncommunicable diseases Diseases that do not spread
8 Germs that Cause Disease Pathogen is the scientific name for germ.pathogen A microscopic organism that causes communicable diseasesFour Classes of PathogensVirusesBacteriaProtozoaFungiCommunicable diseases start with organisms called germs, or pathogens.Within each class of pathogens, there are many different strains, or subtypes.
9 Germs that Cause Disease Some viruses are harmless and some cause diseases.viruses Tiny, nonliving particles that invade and take over healthy cellsViruses are so tiny they require a special microscope to be seen.The common cold, the flu, the measles, and AIDS are examples of diseases caused by viruses.
10 Germs that Cause Disease Bacteria is everywhere.bacteria Extremely small single-celled organisms with no cell nucleusNot all bacteria are harmful to humans. We could not live without bacteria.Strep throat, Lyme disease, and tooth decay are examples of disease caused by bacteria.
11 Germs that Cause Disease Protozoa can be harmless, but some strains can cause serious disease.protozoa Single-celled organisms that have a nucleusSome protozoa, called parasites, attach themselves to healthy cells and rob them of nutrients without killing them.Malaria is an example of a disease caused by protozoa.
12 Germs that Cause Disease Fungi survive by breaking down other living organisms and absorbing their nutrients.fungi Primitive single- or many-celled organisms that cannot make their own foodMost fungi, like edible mushrooms, are harmless to humans.Diseases that fungi can cause include athlete's foot and ringworm.Some strains of fungi, such as molds and yeasts cause disease.
13 How Germs Are Spread Germ Direct Contact (shaking hands) Eating or Drinking Contaminated Food or WaterGermDirect ContactShaking hands is an example of direct contact.Indirect ContactSneezing, coughing, sharing cups, utensils, or other personal items are examples of indirect contactEating or drinking contaminated food or waterBacteria that cause food poisoning are spread this wayContact with animals or insectsGerms enter your body if you are bitten by a sick animal or disease-carrying insect.Indirect Contact (sneezing)Contact with Animals or Insects
14 What I Learned Vocabulary Define pathogen. Use the word in a sentence. Lesson 1 ReviewWhat I LearnedVocabulary Define pathogen. Use the word in asentence.A pathogen is a microscopic organism or virus that causes disease.
15 What I Learned Recall Name a disease caused by a fungus. Lesson 1 ReviewWhat I LearnedRecall Name a disease caused by a fungus.Sample answers: athlete's foot, ringworm
16 What I Learned Identify Name four common disease-causing organisms. Lesson 1 ReviewWhat I LearnedIdentify Name four common disease-causing organisms.Four common pathogens are bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa.
17 Lesson 1 ReviewThinking CriticallyExplain What is the difference between a communicable disease and a noncommunicable disease?Communicable diseases can be spread; noncommunicable diseases cannot be spread.
18 Lesson 1 ReviewThinking CriticallyApply Should you take a bite of a friend’s sandwich if you had seen him or her coughing and sneezing earlier in class?Sample answer: No, you should not accept the bite of your friend’s sandwich because the friend might have a cold.

20 Activity: MOVE YOUR BODY. Why is it important to remain germ-free? Provide examples (3) to support your answer.Provide (2) examples for communicable and (2) examples for noncommunicable disease.How germs can be spread?
21 Essential Question:How can I protect myself from disease?Enduring Understanding:Communicable diseases can be prevented with good hygiene practices and vaccines.
22 Spreading a virus to others by direct or indirect contact contagiousimmune systemStrep throatSpreading a virus to others by direct or indirect contactA group of cells, tissues, and organs that fight diseaseIt is a bacterial throat infection that can make your throat feel sore and scratchy.Click to reveal the definitions.Inflammation of the liver, caused by a virus or a toxin and characterized by jaundice, liver enlargement, and fever.Hepatitis
23 In this lesson, you will learn to recognize ways pathogens are spread.identify common communicable diseases.demonstrate healthful behaviors that limit the spread of pathogens.
24 Common Communicable Diseases When symptoms of a cold first appear, you are contagious.contagious Spreading a virus to others by direct or indirect contactColds are responsible for more school absences that any other illness.There are more than 200 different viruses that cause colds.To help prevent giving your cold to others, cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.To help your body recover from a cold, you should rest in bed and drink plenty of fluids.Your parent or guardian may give you over-the-counter (OTC) medicines that will help with the symptoms.If you have a sore throat for several days, you should see a doctor.The cold is the most common communicable disease.
25 Common Communicable Diseases Symptoms of influenza, or “the flu,” include high fever and joint and muscle aches.Resting and drinking fluids can help you recover from the flu faster.Some strains of the flu are serious and can require a doctor’s care.
26 Common Communicable Diseases SymptomsTreatmentMononucleosisSwollen lymph glands (in neck, underarms, groin), headaches, sore muscles, sore throat, fever, fatiguePain relievers, rest, liquidsHepatitis A, B, and CWeakness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, fever, yellowing of eyes, abdominal pain, dark urineRest, healthful food choices (medication for Types B and C)Tuberculosis (TB)Cough, fatigue, persistent fever, night sweats, weight lossAntibiotics taken over a long period of timeStrep throatSore throat, fever, chills, body aches, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, swollen tonsils or glandsAntibiotics, soft foods, liquids, gargling with salt water
27 Keep it to YourselfWhen you have a cold, take action to prevent spreading your cold to others. Be careful to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Avoid sharing cups, utensils, or other personal items.
28 In a typical day, your body is exposed to millions of germs. Your Body’s DefensesIn a typical day, your body is exposed to millions of germs.You aren’t sick all the time because your body is protected by its own defense system.Your body’s defense system is like a well-designed fort and is actively protecting your health around the clock.
29 The Body’s Five Major Barriers to Block Pathogens Keeping Pathogens OutThe Body’s Five Major Barriers to Block PathogensTearsSalivaSkinPathogens are everywhere, but your body protects you. Your body can block, trap, or break down most pathogens before they make you sick.Tears:Tears cover and protect the eye from dust and pathogens. Tears carry foreign material away from the eye.Saliva:Saliva contains chemicals that kill pathogens.Skin:Skin provides a protective surface that keeps pathogens from entering the blood. Pathogens can get through this barrier if you have a cut or a scrape.Mucous membranes:Mucous membranes are the soft skin that line the nose, mouth, eyes, and other body openings. They are coated in a fluid called mucus. Mucus traps pathogens.Stomach acid:Stomach acid kills many of the pathogens that make it past the saliva and mucous membranes of your mouth.Mucous MembranesStomach Acid
30 Your Body’s First Line of Defense SkinBody FluidsMucous MembranesPyrogenPyrogenA chemical that causes a raise in blood temperature so that germs have a hard time surviving.Fights infection.SkinYour skin is like a wall around your inner organs.Mucous MembranesTissues that line the inside of your mouth, throat, nose and eyes act as barriers.These are sticky fluids that trap and destroy germs.Body FluidsTears and saliva act as a barrier.infection The result of pathogens or germs invading the body, multiplying, and harming some of your body’s cells
31 Your immune system is your second line of defense. immune system A group of cells, tissues, and organs that fight disease
32 Your Immune SystemSome lymphocytes attack pathogens directly while others produce antibodies.lymphocyte A white blood cell that attacks pathogens or harmful germsantibodies Chemicals produced specifically to fight a particular invading substance
33 This is called immunity. Your Immune SystemAntibodies recognize germs that reenter the body and will attack and destroy them.This is called immunity.immunity Resistance to infection
34 Preventing Communicable Diseases Steer clear of people who you know are sick.Get in the habit of washing your hands regularly.Get enough rest, eat healthy foods,and exercise.Your hands are constantly picking up germs from objects in your environment.When you put your hands to your mouth or nose, germs can enter your body.Keep a supply of pre-moistened wipes handy for when you need to wash your hands but soap and water are not available.
35 Preventing Communicable Diseases A vaccine triggers the immune system to make antibodies to fight the pathogen.vaccine A dead or weakened pathogen introduced into your bodyYou don’t become ill from the vaccine because the pathogen is dead or weakened.

37 Lesson 2 ReviewWhat I LearnedDescribe What is the most common communicable disease? Name some other common communicable diseases.The most common communicable disease is the common cold. Other communicable diseases are influenza; mononucleosis; hepatitis A, B, and C; tuberculosis; and strep throat.
38 What I Learned Vocabulary Define antibodies, and use it in a sentence. Lesson 2 ReviewWhat I LearnedVocabulary Define antibodies, and use it in a sentence.An antibody is a chemical that fights a specific pathogen.
39 Lesson 2 ReviewWhat I LearnedList Name a disease that can be prevented with a vaccine.Students may list any disease noted in Figure 11.3.
40 Lesson 2 ReviewThinking CriticallyApply Why should you avoid sharing an ice cream cone with a friend who has a cold?Sharing food is one way that colds are spread.
41 Lesson 2 ReviewThinking CriticallyAnalyze How does handwashing help protect the health of your school and community?By washing away the germs on your hands, you keep them from spreading to others, which protects the health of the community.
42 Chapter 11 Preventing Diseases Lesson 4 Noncommunicable and Hereditary DiseasesClick for:>> Main Menu>> Chapter 11 AssessmentTeacher’s notes are available in the notes section of this presentation.Next >>
43 Essential Question:How can I protect myself from disease?Enduring Understanding: students will understand thatto avoid diseases like cancer and diabetes, you should avoid tobacco, protect yourself from the sun’s UV rays and maintain an active, healthful lifestyle.
44 What different ways can pathogens be spread? DO NOWWhat different ways can pathogens be spread?What is the most common communicable disease?Identify at least three different barriers (line of defense) that your body uses to block pathogens.
45 Heart disease chronic Long-lasting cancer allergy A disease caused by abnormal cells that grow out of controlThe body’s sensitivity to certain substancesClick to reveal the definitions.Heart disease is a range of diseases that affect your heart.Heart disease
46 In this lesson, you will learn to identify causes of various noncommunicable diseases.develop behaviors to keep your heart healthy.identify ways to help prevent diseases like cancer and diabetes.
47 What Causes Noncommunicable Diseases? Poor Health HabitsA Person’s EnvironmentEffects of a Communicable DiseaseHeredityPresent at BirthPoor health habitsPoor eating habits can lead to heart disease and diabetes.A person’s environmentLiving in a city with heavy smog can lead to lung disease.Effects of a communicable diseaseAn infection from measles can spread to the brain and cause brain damage.HeredityAllergies and muscular dystrophy can be passed from a child to a parent.Present at birthExamples are Down syndrome and congenital heart disease.
48 Heart DiseaseHeart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States and is an example of a chronic disease.chronic Long-lastingNarrowing or blocking of blood vessels:The heart has a hard time doing its job and becomes weak.The result can be a heart attack or stroke. Stroke is a destruction of brain tissue cause when the heart can’t pump enough blood to the brain.High blood pressure:High blood pressure is a condition in which the heart is forced to work unusually hard. This can be inherited. It can also be caused by stress, kidney problems, or eating too many foods high in fat or cholesterol.Common causes of heart disease include the narrowing or blocking of blood vessels and high blood pressure.
49 Healthy Habits for your Heart Stay Physically ActiveMaintain a Healthy WeightEat Foods High in Fiber and Low in Salt, Fat, and CholesterolLearn to Manage StressDon’t Use Tobacco ProductsStay physically activeAerobic activity can strengthen your heart and blood vessels. It can also lower blood pressure.Maintain a healthy weight:Having less body fat reduces the strain on the heart and blood vessels.Learn to manage stress:Reducing or managing stress can help lower blood pressure.Don’t use tobacco products:Staying away from tobacco products will lower your risk of stroke, heart attack, and other diseases.
50 Treating Heart Disease There are medications that widen blood vessels, lower blood pressure, and control the heartbeat.For more serious problems, heart disease is treated with surgery.Operations can be done to open blocked arteries or insert devices that regulate the heartbeat. In severe cases, a heart transplant may be considered.
51 Cancer starts out as a tumor. cancer A disease caused by abnormal cells that grow out of controltumor A mass of abnormal cellsCancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States.
52 Some tumors are noncancerous, or benign. Tumors that are cancerous are call malignant.Benign means the tumor does not spread.Malignant means the cancer cells spread to surrounding tissue.Eventually, cancer cells may spread throughout the body.
53 Cancer Causes of Cancer Exposure to Cancer-Causing Substances HeredityExposure to Cancer-Causing SubstancesPoor Health ChoicesSmoking accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths.
54 Don’t use tobacco or drugs CancerAvoiding CancerEat WellStay ActiveUse SunscreenDon’t use tobacco or drugs
55 Treating Cancer C A U Seven Cancer Warning Signs T I O N Changes in bowel or bladder habitsA sore that does not healUnusual bleeding or dischargeThickening or lump in breast or elsewhereIndigestion or difficulty swallowingObvious changes in a wart or moleNagging cough or hoarsenessSeven Cancer Warning SignsPeople who notice any of these warning signs should see a doctor right away.
56 Treating Cancer Ways of Treating Cancer Surgery Radiation Chemotherapy Biologic TherapiesSurgery is used to remove tumors.Radiation is used to destroy cancer cells in a specific location.Chemotherapy travels throughout the body to destroy cancer cells wherever they occur.Biologic treatments work with the body’s immune system, stimulating it to fight cancer.Before the cancer has spreadAfter the cancer has spread
57 If you sneeze when you are around cats, you may have an allergy. AllergiesIf you sneeze when you are around cats, you may have an allergy.allergy The body’s sensitivity to certain substancesCommon allergens includeDander in animal hair or furDustPollenGrassSome moldsFoods such as peanutsAllergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system.Simple medical tests can determine if a person has allergies.There is no cure for allergies, but certain medicines can ease the symptoms.A substance that causes an allergic reaction is called an allergen.
58 Asthma is a health problem related to allergies. asthma A chronic disease in which the airways become irritated and swollenIf an asthma attack is severe, the person may experience a feeling of suffocation and begin to panic.During an asthma attack, the small airways of the lungs become coated with a thick mucous.
59 Cigarette Smoke and Other Sources of Air Pollution AsthmaAsthma TriggersAllergensPhysical ActivityCold or Damp AirCigarette Smoke and Other Sources of Air PollutionTreatment for minor asthma attacks includes inhaling medication to relax the airways.Severe attacks may require a hospital visit.Most asthmatics take medication that helps prevent attacks.Avoiding known triggers can also prevent attacks.Untreated, this disease can lead to permanent lung damages and, in some cases, death.
60 Diabetes is caused when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin. diabetes A disease that prevents the body from using the sugars and starches in food for energyThe pancreas normally moves sugars into cells.insulin A hormone produced by the pancreas
61 Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes Type 2 Diabetes Types of Diabetes The body does not produce insulin at all.The body makes insulin but isunable to use it efficiently.Types of DiabetesSymptoms of DiabetesIncreased thirstFrequent urine productionLack of energyBlurred vision
62 DiabetesPercentage of Obese Children and Teens Over a 40-year Time Period
63 Diabetes in Young People The increase in obesity is related to the increase in type 2 diabetes in young people.Type 2 diabetes used to occur mainly in adults.Today, half of all new cases of type 2 diabetes involve young people.
64 Treatments for diabetes include: Monitoring blood sugar levels Treatment of DiabetesTreatments for diabetes include:Monitoring blood sugar levelsTaking insulinExercising regularlyWatching weightDeveloping a good meal planIt is important to eat foods that keep an level level of sugar in the blood.Physical exercise lowers blood sugar and pressure, improves the body’s ability to use insulin, and helps prevent complications like heart disease.Meal plans that help manage blood sugar include:The Diabetes Food PyramidRate Your PlateExchange ListsCarbohydrate CountingA person with diabetes should speak to his or her doctor or dietician for help in choosing the best meal plan.

131 Lightning is the most dangerous part of a thunderstorm. ThunderstormsLightning is the most dangerous part of a thunderstorm.Lightning is caused by clouds releasing stored-up electrical energy.Thunderstorms can happen in any season, but they are most common during warm weather.
132 Thunderstorms Thunderstorm Tips Seek shelter. Do not use the telephone.If you are in a large field with no shelter, lie down.Avoid all metal objects.Stay away from trees, electric wires, canopies.Stay away from water.
133 A hurricane can cause high waves, which in turn can produce flooding. HurricanesA hurricane can cause high waves, which in turn can produce flooding.hurricane A strong tropical windstorm with driving rainHurricane-force winds can turn over cars and knock down buildings.Wind speeds during a hurricane can reach or exceed 100 miles per hour.
134 Hurricanes Hurricane Tips Board windows. Bring in outdoor objects. Monitor TV and radio reports closely.Obey orders to leave the area if instructed.
135 TornadoesA tornado is most likely to occur in the flat central regions of the country.tornado A whirling, funnel-shaped windstorm that drops from the sky to the ground
136 The most common natural disasters are floods. Flooding is especially serious in regions near large bodies of water.Hurricanes and heavy rainfall can cause floods.Sometimes there is little or no warning before a flood. This is called a flash flood.
137 Floods Flood Tips Never walk or ride in a car through floodwater. Watch out for downed power lines.Only drink bottled water.Clean and disinfect everything that touched floodwater.Throw out all contaminated food.Make sure the water supply is safe before drinking.
138 BlizzardsA blizzard can shut down roads and make it hard for food and other daily needs to reach consumers.A whiteout is a state where snow falls so rapidly, visibility is significantly reduced.
