   AAAS Atlas Physical Health: Specific kinds of germs cause specific diseases. Vaccines induce the body to
   build immunity to a disease without actually causing the disease itself. Viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites
   may infect the human body and interfere with normal body functions. A person can catch a cold many times
   because there are many varieties of cold viruses that cause similar symptoms. The length and quality of human
   life are influenced by many factors, including sanitation, diet, medical care, sex, genes, environmental
   conditions, and personal health behaviors.
