  • Transcript

    • 1. An Invitation to Health Prepared by: Karlyn Grimes MS RD Chapter 14: Defending Yourself Against Infectious Disease
    • 2. Chapter 14 Objectives Explain how different agents of infection spread disease. Describe how your body protects itself from infectious disease. List and describe some common infectious diseases. Identify sexually transmitted infections and the symptoms and treatments of each. List the methods of STI transmission. Define HIV infection and describe its symptoms. Explain some practical methods for preventing HIV infection and other sexually transmitted infections.
    • 3. Agents of Infection Helminths Small parasitic worms that attack specific tissues or organs and compete with the host for nutrients. Protozoa Single-celled, microscopic animals that release enzymes and toxins that destroy cells or interfere with their function. Fungi Single-celled or multi-celled organisms composed of threadlike fibers and reproductive spores. Fungi release enzymes that digest cells in hair-covered areas of the body. Bacteria Simple one-celled organisms. The most plentiful microorganisms as well as the most pathogenic. Bacteria harm the body by releasing enzymes that digest body cells or toxins that produce the specific effects of specific diseases. Viruses Tiniest pathogens, but also the toughest. Consist of a bit of RNA or DNA within a protein coat. Take over a body cell’s reproductive machinery to reproduce.
