An immune system is the arrangement of organic composition within an organism that defends against disease by recognizing and killing pathogens and lump cells. The immune system is made up of particular cells, proteins, tissues and organs that guard against germs and bacteria, which attack the body everyday. In the majority cases, the immune system does its own job in keeping the people strong and averting any type of infection. However, sometimes due to some troubles within the immune system, the body falls ill and is attacked by infection.
