Infectious diseases, also known as communicable diseases, are caused by various pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and multicellular parasites.

As there are as many microorganisms as there are hairs on your head and not all of them are harmful, it makes sense to concentrate on supporting the environment in the body rather than trying to target the specific organism.

Not everybody who comes into contact with a pathogen gets affected because a weakened immune system, rather than the germ itself, makes people more susceptible to infection.

Marvel Oils are the answer, not only because they stimulate the health of the immune system as a whole so that it can protect itself but also because they make the body inhospitable to harmful organisms.
