Microorganisms or microbes are tiny, unicellular organisms that are not visible to the naked human eyes. Some of these microorganisms are beneficial in our day to day life, while others are detrimental to our health. The microorganisms that are harmful to health are known as pathogens.
The microorganisms that cause diseases include viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and a few variations of worms. After these microorganisms invade the host cell, they damage or disrupt the normal cellular activities. This causes diseases on a larger scale.
There are many diseases caused by microorganisms. Following are some of those:
Following are the ways by which microorganisms cause diseases:
