Every day the medicine makes large steps forward, but every year we are facing with a growing number of infectious diseases. Therefore, the issue of the immune system and the body’s ability to fight with the diseases is seen as a challenge.
During the whole year, our body is exposed to invaders such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. The immunity is the body’s ability to fight these attackers. Our body has impressive defense troops that will block, capture and kill the organisms that are recognized as a threat, and their memory will prevent a repeated attack. Without this defense system, most people would constantly be sick from a whole range of microorganisms that threaten our body.
The immune system is active during the day and the night in order to defend us from the attacks and to destroy everything that attacks us all the time. The immune system of our body is made up of the bloodstream, the lymphatic system and a lot of small organs such as the thymus, spleen and tonsils.
Healthy Life for Strong Immune System
The defense from the diseases is the main function of the white blood cells, and one of the activities of all those groups is the production of these cells. The immune system monitors our body and prevents the development of unhealthy cells in the organism.
If we talk about good immunity, we must mention that a healthy life is important and it consists of a healthy diet, sufficient amount of sleep and rest, adequate physical activity, good hygiene habits, adequate working and living habits, and certainly avoiding risky behavior.
