It is known as a NON-INFECTIOUS disease. as it is caused by the lack of Vitamin C in the body.
Most of the cancers, most of the cardiovascular diseases, accidents, hereditary diseases and nutritional deficiency diseases are non infectious diseases.
Infectious diseases include influenza, gonorrhea, and chickenpox. Non-infectious diseases include heart failure, type 2 diabetes, and osteoarthritis.
Infectious and non-infectious
leukemia is non infectious because it is genetic and genetic diseases cannot be transmitted.
Cancer, diabetes, hypertension are few non infectious diseases. These diseases are not transferred from one person to other person.
Infectious diseases are those diseases which are caused by infectious agents (which include microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa and virus, as well as some multicellular animals such as worms) and hence they are the ones which can spread from one person to another. Non-infectious diseases are those diseases that are not caused by infectious agents and do not spread from one person to another.
Anorexia is not a disease. It is a symptom. Cause may be infectious or non-infectious.
Non-infectious diseases are easier to control - because you only need to treat the individual patient. With infectious diseases - the illness is spread between people - by touching or simply breathing in the same air while in close contact.
Non-infectious diseases are diseases that cannot be spread from person to person via non-hereditary means. Examples of these are: cancer, leukemia, sickle-cell anemia, autoimmune diseases, heart disease, emphysema, gout, diabetes, osteoporosis, etc..
There are Infectious Diseases and Non infectious Diseases. Infectious diseases can be transmitted from person to person, and can be spread from one living thing to another are known as communicable diseases. They can be caused by, Bacteria, Viruses, Protists, etc. which is the Plague. Non infectious diseases can not be transmitted from person to person, these are things like Cancers.
to prevent non infectious diseases we must be aware about our personal hygiene ,diet ,intake of proper amount of vitamins ,minerals and other important nutrients
Most heart diseases are non-infectious. Some can be caused by bacteria or viruses but that is usually not what people mean by heart disease.
Anemia -- an abnormal decrease in red blood cells -- is typically Non - infectious. Some infectious diseases, such as dengue and ebola, may cause anemia.
Non infectious diseases are spread by the environment, bad nutrition, genetic inheritance, and hereditary diseases.
Non-infectious cannot be spread from person to person. Infectious can be spread from person to person. This would include Viruses, Fungi, and STD's Infectious diseases are caused by pathogens , which are disease causing organisms. The major groups of pathogens are viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoans and multi-cellular parasites. Non-infectious diseases are not caused by pathogens but can be caused by physiological malfunction, environmental (or chemical) factors, heredity (e.g. faulty gene/chromosome combinations), unknown causes or a combination of factors.
Infectious diseases - Dysentery, Pneumonia, Typhoid, Hepatitis A & E, Dengue. Non-infectious diseases - Diabetes, Arthritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Coronary problems.
An "infectious disease" an agent that can be passed from one living organism to another. A non-infectious disease is a disease or other condition that cannot be spread to another organism.
There are thousands of infectious diseases.
A non-infectious disease is one that is not transmittable to another human being. These include diseases like diabetes, osteoporosis, and Parkinson's.
The respective possibility for the transmission or non-transmission by patients is the difference between communicable infections and non-communicable diseases. A condition which cannot be passed on from person to person necessarily will be considered non-infectious.
