Expert Answer:

Infectious diseases are caused by agents such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, protists and worms. They can spread from one person to another through various ways. Non-infectious diseases atre not caused by pathogens, but due to some other causes like life style changes, imbalanced diet, genetic problems etc. they cannot usually spread from person to person through contact.
