Diseases Cause and Prevention
Diseases Cause and Prevention
When there is no normal function or function in any part or system of human body, it is called disease. The organisms causing the disease are called germs. The study of diseases is called pathology.
- Anthrax is an infectious disease commonly occurring in vegetarian animals caused by a bacterium called Bacillus anthracis. Infection in humans is caused by exposure to animals.
- Its symptoms start appearing in 7 to 10 days. The patient has fever, fatigue, dry cough and restlessness. Anthrax is identified by antibody test, ELISA test, blood test and bacterial culture.
- Pre-infection vaccine is also a preventive measure. Antibiotic drugs should be used after infection. Anthrax bacteria are also being used as biological weapons.
- It is also called avian influenza or avian flu. Virus of the arthemixoviridal clan is caused by influenza. This virus lives on birds, due to which it spreads to other animals like pigs, horses, fish, humans etc.
- Since the bird is its carrier, it becomes difficult to stop within a certain range. In the last days, the outbreak was H5N1 type of flu. By this the lung cells are condensed. Temiflu is an effective bird flu drug.
- This virus-borne disease that started in Gorakhpur district of Uttar Pradesh is caused by mosquito bites in humans.
- Its viruses are found in arboviruses, Culex mosquitoes, which have an amazing ability to breed in paddy fields.
- Through blood, the viruses reach the glands and multiply and increase in number. Again the blood invades the brain and destroys the tissues.
- This affects not only the brain but also the spinal card.

- The external respiratory system basically becomes dry inside the nose and becomes so hard that it is difficult to breathe. Fever, terrible pain, dizziness, nausea, etc. are the primary symptoms.
- Second symptoms are physical inability, paralytic condition, shivering attack, faint facial crust, brain imbalance etc.
- Body weight loss due to excessive dehydration leads to death in 7 to 14 days.
- Due to the abundance of mosquito breeding places in rural areas and the availability of secondary nutrients (domesticated pig etc.), the disease spreads more in rural areas than in cities, hence sometimes it is also called as disease in rural areas. Avoidance of this is the treatment, so avoiding mosquitoes is to avoid disease. By the way, its vaccine (JE vaccine) is also available.
It is also known as arthritis or gout. In this disease, there is pain in the joints of the body. It is of many types.
Gout: It hurts due to accumulation of uric acid in the joints of the bones of the body.
Osteoarthritis: The cartilage of the joints of bones is weakened, this reduces flexibility of joints and they become stiff.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: occurs due to swelling of the cyanovial membrane and hard tissue over the cartilage.
Pollution borne diseases
Minimata: It is caused by excess of mercury (Hg) in the body. Initially it was caused by eating mercury-coordinated fishes in the Gulf of Minimata, Japan. In it, the body parts, lips and tongue stop working, as well as deafness, blurring of the eyes and mental imbalance.
Itai-itai disease: It is caused by pollution of cadmium. This disease occurs when cadmium reaches higher levels than the body’s safety level. In addition to bones and joints pain, liver and lung cancer also occur.
Blue baby syndrome: Excess of nitrate. Excess of nitrate reacts with hemoglobin to form inactive methemoglobin which blocks oxygen transmission in the body. As a result, the body turns blue.
Black foot: Continuous exposure to arsenic causes this disease, it also causes skin and lung cancer. It is found more in animals.
Hysteria: Hysteria is a dramatic or extravagant behavior in a passionate or extraordinary way when there is a loss of desire or hope. Stiffness in the hands and feet of the patient, insidiousness in the body or the patient starts laughing or crying loudly.

Blindness: It is a sex-related disease. It does not have the ability to recognize red and green color of the patient.
That is why it is also called red-green blindness. Men are mainly affected in this. Women are only carriers. This disease occurs in women only when both of its chromosomes (× ×) are affected. If only one chromosome (×) has genes of color, then women will act as carriers. Conversely, males will become blind only when there are organisms of color blindness on one gene (×) of males.
Haemophilia: Blood clot does not form in a person suffering from this disease and blood keeps flowing on cutting or bursting. The inheritance of Himophilia is similar to color blindness ie it is also a sex-linked disease.
Women are also carriers in this. Helden believes that the disease began with Queen Victoria of Britain.
National Infectious Disease Control Program (NVBDCP): The Directorate of AVNBDCP acts as the national nodal agency for monitoring and coordinating the centrally sponsored schemes.

Malaria: It is a parasitic disease spread by a mosquito called Plasmodium falciparum or Plasmodium vivax.
Filaria: Lymphatic filariasis is a serious disease that makes the body parts very weak and inefficient. The disease is spread by a mosquito called Culex queencucciatus. This causes swelling in the body and genitals of the afflicted person and he is unable to do any work.
