Some interesting facts that you should know about Infectious Diseases:
- It has been noted that infectious diseases kill more people worldwide than any other single cause.
- Germs are tiny living things found everywhere; in the air, soil, water, plants, food and just about every other surface including your body.
- Infection can come by touching, eating or breathing something containing a germ. Germs are also spread through animal bites, kissing and sexual contact.
- Your immune system works very hard to protect the body against a multitude of infectious agents. However, germs are constantly changing and mutating. These mutated germs then try to breach your immune systems.
