7. When infections are most dangerous
These are the organs that make up the Immune system:
The Immune system is made up of cells, proteins, tissues, and organs, which protects the body against germs and micro organisms every day.
The Immune system protects the body from getting illnesses such as bacteria and germs. Leukocytes are released to destroy diseases.
The immune system can also cause problems in the body. Sometimes the immune system doesn’t know what it is fighting and it may attack the body instead of the germs and bacteria. Some people have died from this disease. Sometimes the immune system can create a disease which makes it hard to fight. Because the immune system can’t fight itself.
To keep the immune system working properly you need to eat healthy to build up a good immune function. Immunisation can also prevent diseases by the immune system fighting germs. When you go on a holiday overseas you need to get an inoculation which protects the body from foreign germs.
Leukocytes- White blood cells
Paralysed- Unable to move a body part
Antibiotics- Is a special medicine made for a particular illness
Contagious- Spreading a disease
Micro organisms- They are very small cells that you can only see with a microscope. They work alone or in groups.
