There is a kind of a Police force in our body that keeps us safe from the harmful outside antigens.
There are a lot of viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms out there that can cause a lot of diseases to human beings and to fight out these unwanted guests in our body, there is a system in our body that is known as the Immune System.
Have you ever got the flu and suddenly after a few days, even without taking any medicine it has gone away? Well, it is due to the immune system of our body.
It helps and gives the power to our body to fight against a number of diseases and also to heal as well.
But, there is a negative side attached to it as well. Imagine that the country that you are living in suddenly loses all of its Police or Army. What will happen then?
The answer to this query is quite simple and that is that the country is going to be under immense outside pressure and their chances of survival will go down like a deck of cards.
Same is the case with our body as well. If our immune system collapses or does not work properly then even the slightest of injuries or the minor diseases as well can prove deadly.
This happens when someone is suffering from HIV. It stands for Human immunoDeficiency virus and in this disease, the immune system of our body does not work properly and hence we become very vulnerable.
