SCI.7-8.S7-8:42.a: Science

Viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites may infect then human body and interfere with normal body functions.

SCI.7-8.S7-8:42.b: Science

The environment may contain dangerous levels of substances that are harmful to human beings.

SCI.9-12.S9-12:42.1: Science

SCI.9-12.S9-12:42.2: Science

SCI.9-12.S9-12:42.3: Science

The severity of human disease depends upon many factors, such as resistance to disease the virulence of the infecting organism.
