Disease

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A disease is a condition in which the life of an organism does not proceed easily; Encyclopedia Britannica defines it as "a harmful deviation from the normal structural or functional state of an organism".[1] Modern allopathic medicine recognizes many, but not all, diseases as infections by bacteria, other microbes, or viruses. A more holistic approach blames disease on stress, since germs are everywhere (like radiation and toxins). This has some factual basis, though, as stress can weaken the immune system.[2]
