Wednesday Word is where I define and discuss a medical term , like this one.
endemic- natural to or characteristic of a particular people or place
Medically speaking, an endemic disease occurs in a particular place or a particular population; for example, malaria is endemic to tropical areas; malnutrition is endemic to people suffering from famine.
Related words are
epidemic– a sudden severe outbreak of a disease in a particular location or group , such as influenza epidemics.
pandemic– an epidemic becomes wide spread, across countries and continents
