Remember there is a difference between an illness and a disease. It is important to use these words appropriately in a medical context.
Examples of diseases and illnesses:
- Tetanus is disease caused by bacterial toxins.
- Diphtheria is a severe upper respiratory disease.
- Harmful bacteria and viruses are responsible for food borne illnesses.
- Schizophrenia and depression are the examples of mental illnesses.
Thank you, F, for these examples. Do you have more to add to the list?
