Infectious Diseases by Parasites

Parasites are living beings that live off different organisms, or hosts, to survive. A few parasites don't affect their hosts. Others develop, repeat, or attack organ system that make their hosts sick, bringing about parasitic contamination. Malaria is one of the deadliest parasitic diseases. Parasitic infections can be caused by three types of organisms: protozoa, helminths, ectoparasites.

Parasitic infections can be spread in various manners. For example, protozoa and helminths can be spread through contaminated water, food, waste, soil, and blood. Some can be passed through sexual contact. A few parasites are spread by insects that go about as a vector, or transporter, of the disease. For example, malaria is caused by parasitic protozoa that are transmitted by mosquitos when they feed on people.
