GCSE level School biology notes: Communicable diseases and risk factors and prevention

SITEMAP   Use page sub-index, take time to study the content on communicable diseases

Communicable Diseases - one person can infect another - examples explained, transmission, treatments, reduction, prevention

Doc Brown's GCSE level biology exam revision study notes:  What is a communicable disease?   What is a vector? How can we minimise the spread of communicable diseases? How do you prevent the spread of communicable diseases? Describe and explain examples of communicable diseases?

Sub-index for this page

(2) Which types of pathogens cause communicable diseases?

(3) How are pathogens spread?

(4) Bacterial pathogen communicable diseases - salmonella, E. coli

(5) Bacterial pathogen communicable diseases - cholera, tuberculosis (TB), stomach ulcers
