  7. 7. HOW PATHOGENS CAUSE DISEASE. <ul><li>Once these pathogens are inside your body they cause disease because they reproduce rapidly. </li></ul><ul><li>Bacteria do this by splitting in two. They often produce toxins at the same time. </li></ul><ul><li>Viruses actually take over cells, damaging and destroying them. </li></ul>AQA Science © Nelson Thornes Ltd 2006
