What are the Health and Disease book causal antecedents? Adults generally have their cholesterol measured at least once every four to six years.

This model takes the presence of elevated risk, for example as indicated by high blood pressure, to be a disease even in the absence of overt symptoms or a clearly destructive pathological process.

Although there is a thriving body of work that tries to analyse the concept of disease — as we'll see Health and Disease book a moment — other theorists dispute the prospects for a successful analysis of the concept of disease.

We also distinguish, based on our common sense understanding of human biology, between pathological and non-pathological versions of the same outward phenomena. Nor can we always discover some other abnormality, such as the elevated levels of helicobacter pylori bacteria that have been found to be causally implicated in stomach ulcers discussed in detail by Thagard Values Health and Disease book people from getting the science right, but homosexuality Health and Disease book correctly understood, and no longer seen as a disease, when the science was done in a properly disinterested way.

Some protists require an animal intermediate, such as a mosquito, to enter the body Sometimes protists enter the body through the digestive tract from contaminated food or water.

Rather, constructivists assert that to call a condition a disease is to make a judgment that someone in that condition is undergoing a specific kind of harm that we explain in terms of bodily processes. For constructivists, the big problem is to say why we judge some human phenomena to be symptoms of disease whereas others are taken as evidence that someone is criminal or ugly or possessed by demons or something else we do not admire.
