    Explanation
    Volume 2 is focused on disease and injuries. This means that the content of Volume 2 primarily deals with these two topics. It may include information on various diseases, their causes, symptoms, treatments, and prevention methods. Additionally, it may also cover different types of injuries, their causes, severity, and ways to treat or prevent them. The inclusion of these two subjects in Volume 2 suggests that the volume aims to provide comprehensive knowledge on disease and injuries.
