Diseases are caused by microorganisms?

The majority of diseases are caused by microorganisms (mostly bacteria, but sometimes viruses) which enter a person's body and launch an attack on their cells. Depending on the person, diseases may also be caused by stress-induced situations, as your immune system does not function well when you are undfer stress, and will therefore not be effective against fighting diseases as well as a person with a healthy immune system. Bacteria and Viruses are transferred through the air or environment, or an open wound in the skin; although, when exposed to bacteria or viruses which your body has developed an immunity to, you will not show signs of infection.
