Infectious apent vi- ruses, bacieria and parasites, anything foreipn to the body; that is a livinR organism ca- pable of causing disease. Some of these, like the com mon' cold, cause diseases that are transmitted from one person lo another. There are a hn.i nf contagious diseases, like luncr- culosis. diphtlioria and chicken pox. all spread from people to people. Other infectious dis-: eases are not spread by people.

Our body is covered with bac-; tcria that normally cause no problems. A simple break in the skin, though, may allow germs to infect the root of a tiny hair and presto, you have a pimple, caused by an "infectious agent."
