Functions of the immune system: How and why

The main functions of the immune system

Every day, year in - year out, we are exposed to influences that can be potentially dangerous to our bodies: bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses and harmful substances. A complex network of "bodyguards" is responsible for the defence against germs and diseases and for the protection of our body cells: our immune system. It consists of various organs, cell assemblies, cell types and individual molecules. The immune system is essential for survival.
