The purpose for writing ‘Breaking the Chain of Disease’ is to help people take a more effective approach to protect themselves from the daily situations that put them at risk to disease and illness.

Approximately 24.2 million people visit the doctor’s office every year for ailments caused by infectious and parasitic diseases in the U.S. alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Richard DeRose discusses the steps necessary to stay healthy and avoid everyday risks in his book, “Breaking the Chain of Disease” (published by iUniverse).

“The purpose for writing ‘Breaking the Chain of Disease’ is to help people take a more effective approach to protect themselves from the daily situations that put them at risk to disease and illness,” DeRose says. “All of the scenarios depicted in this book are preventable. My entire goal is to help people from becoming the next statistic.”

DeRose covers the topics of:

  •     the spread and prevention sexually transmitted diseases and other infectious diseases
  •     the history and future of infectious disease
