Chapter 11 Preventing Diseases Lesson 1 What Causes Disease? >> Main Menu Next >> >> Chapter 11 Assessment Click for: Teacher’s notes are available in the notes section of this presentation.
Essential Question: Why is it important to remain germ free? Enduring Understanding: Students will understand that pathogens are spread through direct contact, indirect contact, through impure food or unclean water, and contact with animals or insects.
Noncommunicable diseases Diseases that do not spread Primitive single- or many-celled organisms that cannot make their own food fungi Single-celled organisms that have a nucleus protozoa
In this lesson, you will learn to identify the two main types of disease. recognize four common disease-causing organisms. describe how germs spread.
Analyzing a Graphic Create a concept map that shows how germs can be spread. Use this diagram as a guide. Germs
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
Types of Diseases The two basic categories of diseases are: Communicable diseases Noncommunicable disease communicable diseases Diseases that can be spread noncommunicable diseases Diseases that do not spread
Germs that Cause Disease Pathogen is the scientific name for germ. pathogen A microscopic organism that causes communicable diseases Four Classes of Pathogens VirusesBacteriaProtozoaFungi
Germs that Cause Disease Some viruses are harmless and some cause diseases. viruses Tiny, nonliving particles that invade and take over healthy cells The common cold, the flu, the measles, and AIDS are examples of diseases caused by viruses.
Germs that Cause Disease Bacteria is everywhere. bacteria Extremely small single-celled organisms with no cell nucleus Strep throat, Lyme disease, and tooth decay are examples of disease caused by bacteria.
Germs that Cause Disease Protozoa can be harmless, but some strains can cause serious disease. protozoa Single-celled organisms that have a nucleus Malaria is an example of a disease caused by protozoa.
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 food Some strains of fungi, such as molds and yeasts cause disease.
How Germs Are Spread Germ Direct Contact (shaking hands) Indirect Contact (sneezing) Eating or Drinking Contaminated Food or Water Contact with Animals or Insects

Activity: MOVE YOUR BODY. 1. Why is it important to remain germ-free? Provide examples (3) to support your answer. 2. Provide (2) examples for communicable and (2) examples for noncommunicable disease. 3. How germs can be spread?
Essential Question: How can I protect myself from disease? Enduring Understanding: Communicable diseases can be prevented with good hygiene practices and vaccines.
contagious immune system Strep throat Spreading a virus to others by direct or indirect contact A group of cells, tissues, and organs that fight disease It is a bacterial throat infection that can make your throat feel sore and scratchy. Inflammation of the liver, caused by a virus or a toxin and characterized by jaundice, liver enlargement, and fever. Hepatitis
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.
contagious Spreading a virus to others by direct or indirect contact Common Communicable Diseases When symptoms of a cold first appear, you are contagious. The cold is the most common communicable disease.
Common Communicable Diseases Symptoms of influenza, or “the flu,” include high fever and joint and muscle aches.
Common Communicable Diseases DiseaseSymptomsTreatment Mononucleosis Swollen lymph glands (in neck, underarms, groin), headaches, sore muscles, sore throat, fever, fatigue Pain relievers, rest, liquids Hepatitis A, B, and C Weakness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, fever, yellowing of eyes, abdominal pain, dark urine Rest, healthful food choices (medication for Types B and C) Tuberculosis (TB) Cough, fatigue, persistent fever, night sweats, weight loss Antibiotics taken over a long period of time Strep throat Sore throat, fever, chills, body aches, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, swollen tonsils or glands Antibiotics, soft foods, liquids, gargling with salt water
Keep it to Yourself When 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.
Your Body’s Defenses In 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.
Keeping Pathogens Out The Body’s Five Major Barriers to Block Pathogens TearsSalivaSkin Mucous Membranes Stomach Acid
Your Body’s First Line of Defense Skin Body Fluids Mucous Membranes Pyrogen Skin Your skin is like a wall around your inner organs. Body Fluids Tears and saliva act as a barrier. Mucous Membranes Tissues that line the inside of your mouth, throat, nose and eyes act as barriers. These are sticky fluids that trap and destroy germs. Pyrogen A chemical that causes a raise in blood temperature so that germs have a hard time surviving. Fights infection. infection The result of pathogens or germs invading the body, multiplying, and harming some of your body’s cells
Your Immune System Your immune system is your second line of defense. immune system A group of cells, tissues, and organs that fight disease
Your Immune System Some lymphocytes attack pathogens directly while others produce antibodies. lymphocyte A white blood cell that attacks pathogens or harmful germs antibodies Chemicals produced specifically to fight a particular invading substance
Your Immune System Antibodies recognize germs that reenter the body and will attack and destroy them. This is called immunity. immunity Resistance to infection
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.
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 body
Preventing Communicable Diseases VaccineThe Disease It Protects Against Hep BHepatitis B DTaPDiphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough) HibDisease caused by Hemophilus influenza type B (Hib) bacteria IPVPoliomyelitis PVCDiseases caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria MMRMeasles, mumps, rubella VaricellaChicken pox Hep AHepatitis A

Essential Question: How can I protect myself from disease? Enduring Understanding: students will understand that to avoid diseases like cancer and diabetes, you should avoid tobacco, protect yourself from the sun’s UV rays and maintain an active, healthful lifestyle.
DO NOW 1.What different ways can pathogens be spread? 2.What is the most common communicable disease? 3.Identify at least three different barriers (line of defense) that your body uses to block pathogens.
chronic cancer allergy Long-lasting A disease caused by abnormal cells that grow out of control Heart disease is a range of diseases that affect your heart. Heart disease The body’s sensitivity to certain substances
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.
What Causes Noncommunicable Diseases? Poor Health Habits A Person’s Environment Effects of a Communicable Disease Heredity Present at Birth
Heart Disease Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States and is an example of a chronic disease. chronic Long-lasting Common causes of heart disease include the narrowing or blocking of blood vessels and high blood pressure.
Healthy Habits for your Heart Stay Physically Active Maintain a Healthy Weight Eat Foods High in Fiber and Low in Salt, Fat, and Cholesterol Learn to Manage Stress Don’t Use Tobacco Products
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.
Cancer Cancer starts out as a tumor. cancer A disease caused by abnormal cells that grow out of control tumor A mass of abnormal cells Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States.
Cancer Some tumors are noncancerous, or benign. Tumors that are cancerous are call malignant.
Cancer Heredity Exposure to Cancer-Causing Substances Poor Health Choices Causes of Cancer Smoking accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths.
Cancer Avoiding Cancer Eat WellStay ActiveUse Sunscreen Don’t use tobacco or drugs
Treating Cancer C A U T I O N Changes in bowel or bladder habits A sore that does not heal Unusual bleeding or discharge Thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere Indigestion or difficulty swallowing Obvious changes in a wart or mole Nagging cough or hoarseness Seven Cancer Warning Signs
Treating Cancer Ways of Treating Cancer SurgeryRadiationChemotherapy Biologic Therapies Before the cancer has spreadAfter the cancer has spread
Allergies If you sneeze when you are around cats, you may have an allergy. allergy The body’s sensitivity to certain substances A substance that causes an allergic reaction is called an allergen.
Asthma Asthma is a health problem related to allergies. asthma A chronic disease in which the airways become irritated and swollen During an asthma attack, the small airways of the lungs become coated with a thick mucous.
Asthma Asthma Triggers Allergens Physical Activity Cold or Damp Air Cigarette Smoke and Other Sources of Air Pollution
Diabetes 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 energy insulin A hormone produced by the pancreas
Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes Type 2 Diabetes The body does not produce insulin at all. The body makes insulin but is unable to use it efficiently. Types of DiabetesSymptoms of Diabetes Increased thirst Frequent urine production Lack of energy Blurred vision
Diabetes Percentage of Obese Children and Teens Over a 40-year Time Period
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.

In this lesson, you will learn to identify types of weather emergencies and natural disasters. recognize how to prepare for weather emergencies and natural disasters.
Compare and Contrast As you read, keep notes on the differences between weather emergencies and natural disasters.
Weather Emergencies and Natural Disasters Having an emergency kit is part of preparing for natural disasters. natural disasters Events caused by nature that result in widespread damage, destruction, and loss
Thunderstorms Lightning is the most dangerous part of a thunderstorm. Lightning is caused by clouds releasing stored-up electrical energy.
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.
Hurricanes A hurricane can cause high waves, which in turn can produce flooding. hurricane A strong tropical windstorm with driving rain Wind speeds during a hurricane can reach or exceed 100 miles per hour.
Hurricanes Hurricane Tips Board windows. Bring in outdoor objects. Monitor TV and radio reports closely. Obey orders to leave the area if instructed.
Tornadoes A 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
Floods The most common natural disasters are floods. Flooding is especially serious in regions near large bodies of water.
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.
Blizzards A 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.
Blizzards Health risks from being in a blizzard include: Hypothermia Frostbite frostbite Freezing of the skin Frostbite can cause severe injury to the skin and sometimes to deeper tissue.
Tornadoes A 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
Tornadoes Tornado Tips Go to a storm cellar. If you don’t have a storm cellar, go to a hallway, bathroom, or other room with no windows. Don’t stay in a car or mobile home. If you are outdoors, look for a ditch and lie down.
Earthquakes If you are inside when an earthquake hits, stay there. earthquake A The shaking of the ground as rock below the surface moves
Earthquakes Earthquake Tips Brace yourself in a doorway. If possible, crawl under a large piece of furniture. Move away from objects that could fall. If you are outside, stand in the open and stay away from trees, buildings, and power lines. After an earthquake, report any odor of gas.

first aid rescue breathing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR abdominal thrust The care first given to an injured or ill person until regular medical care can be supplied A substitute for normal breathing in which someone forces air into the victim’s lungs A rescue measure that attempts to restore heartbeat and breathing Quick upward pulls into the diaphragm to force out the object blocking the airway Fracture: it is the breaking or cracking of a bone or the tearing of a cartilage. Dislocation: displacement of one or more bones at a joint Cramp: A sudden, involuntary, spasmodic muscular contraction causing severe pain, often occurring in the leg or shoulder as the result of strain or chill. Pulled muscle: when a muscle becomes overstretched and tears.
poison control center first-degree burn second-degree burn third-degree burn A community agency that helps people deal with poisoning emergencies A burn in which only the outer part of the skin in burned and turns red A burn in which the damaged area blisters or peels A very serious burn in which deeper layers of skin and nerve endings are damaged
In this lesson, you will learn to name strategies for responding to emergencies. describe how you can help someone who is bleeding. identify the universal sign for choking. explain how to help a burn victim.
Sequencing Choose two of the emergencies described in the lesson. For each, make a flow chart showing the steps in treating the emergency.
Giving First Aid Giving first-aid can mean the difference between life and death. first aid The care first given to an injured or ill person until regular medical care can be supplied
A life-saving technique for victims whose hearts have stopped beating is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) A rescue measure that attempts to restore heartbeat and breathing
First Aid for Severe Bleeding When treating a victim with severe bleeding, take precautions to limit touching another person’s blood. Wear gloves if possible and always wash your hands afterward.
First Aid for Severe Bleeding Tips for treating a victim with sever bleeding include: Lie the person down. Elevate the wounded body part above the victim’s heart if there are no broken bones. Apply direct, steady pressure to the wound with a clean cloth. Do not press too hard. Once the bleeding has stopped, cover the wound with a clean cloth. Get medical help immediately.
First Aid for Choking Choking is a condition that occurs when a person’s airway becomes blocked. A chocking victim can die in minutes because air cannot get to the lungs.
First Aid for Choking If you know someone is choking, begin using abdominal thrusts. abdominal thrusts Quick upward pulls into the diaphragm to force out the object blocking the airway
First Aid for Poisoning If you think someone has swallowed poison, call 911, EMS, or your local poison control center. poison control center A community agency that helps people deal with poisoning emergencies The inside cover of your phone book should list the phone number of the poison control center.
First Aid for Poisoning Take these steps while waiting for help to arrive. Keep the person warm and breathing. Remove extra traces of poison from the person’s mouth with a damp, clean cloth. Save the container of the poison to show the ambulance team. Prepare to tell the emergency team all you know about what happened.
First Aid for Burns Treatment for a first-degree burn includes: first-degree burn A burn in which only the outer part of the skin is burned and turns red Cooling the burned area with cold water (not ice) for at least 15 minutes Wrapping the burned area loosely in a clean, dry dressing
First Aid for Burns Treatment for a second-degree burn includes: second-degree burn A serious type of burn in which the damaged area blisters or peels Cooling the burned area with cold water (not ice) Elevating the burned area Wrapping the burned area loosely in a clean, dry dressing Seeing a doctor
First Aid for Burns Treatment for a third-degree burn includes: third-degree burn A very serious burn in which deeper layers of skin and nerve endings are damaged Cooling the burn with cold water or by applying a wet cloth Not applying ice or ointments Removing clothing that may stick to the burned area while applying cold water Wrapping the burned area loosely with a clean, dry dressing and call 911
First Aid for Breaks and Sprains Take these steps when helping someone who fractured a bone. Ask if the person heard a snap or if touching the injured area hurts. If unsure, treat the person as if they have a broken bone and call 911. If there is bleeding, apply pressure with a clean cloth. Do not attempt to straighten out the injured part. Avoid moving the person.
First Aid for Breaks and Sprains A sprain occurs when a joint is stretched or twisted or has torn ligaments. Sprains are often sports-related.
