What is Immunity? 

According to Wikipedia in simple lay man’s terms, it is defined as – The immune system is the set of tissues which work together to resist infections.

How Does it work –

The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body. One of the important cells involved are white blood cells, also called leukocytes, which come in two basic types that combine to seek out and destroy disease-causing organisms or substances.

Why is it important

Immunity is the body’s defense mechanism of the fight against diseases and infections. the human body is exposed to trillions of germs every single day which can be found in the air we breathe, drinking water or food. There is no escaping from bacteria, and the body is always vulnerable to an attack by germs. When the immune system is weak, bacteria tend to be stronger and this is what makes the body susceptible to diseases.
