Your body’s immune system is essential as it is your body’s natural defense system. The network of cells, organs, and tissues that are present within it come together to help defend your body against unwanted visitors.
These uninvited guests are bacteria, viruses, parasites and even fungus. All of these invaders hold a high potential for making us exponentially sick. The immune system produces white blood cells that attack and destroy these harmful intruders.
Our immune system can become weak if we overload it with all the wrong kind of influences.
One of the major factors that contribute to the weakening of the immune system is stress. Stress has always been known to have a colossal negative effect on a person’s immune system.
Lack of sleep has also been known to be an agent that donates to the destruction of the immune system. Lack of exercise, poor levels of nutrition, and low levels of digestion also contribute aggressively to the decline of our gallant immune system.
Smoking has been a long-standing well-known cause of lung cancer, but what was not so well-known was that second-hand smoking can also cause irreparable damage to your immune system.
