Question: Science

Difference between a parasite and a pathogen ?

In Science | Asked by Dr. John Carmen

 Pathogen means disease producing organism. Pathogen is capable of producing disease in human. But parasite is not capable to produce diseases always. It dependents on human for its life functions. Parasites rarely produce diseases in their hosts. Helminth (worms) are parasite.
