How does it work
How do they work ?
The epidermis, which is the outer most part of the skin, protects the body from any unwanted invaders.
The skin secretes chemicals that have the potential of elimination any unwanted attackers.
The mucus protects the body by trapping foreign particle and bacteria in its sticky texture as we respire.
The cilia, which are the hair like structures in our nose, pushed the mucus to the back of our throats for coughing or swallowing.

The Immune System
Saliva is capable of demolishing many bacteria due to its chemical structure.
Even though it’s not effective for every bacteria, its is capable of destroying a vast number of them
The acids in our stomach that breaks down our food, is also capable of killing bacterial
and other unwanted invaders
It is so acidic that our stomach produces special mucus that prevents the acid from eating through our stomach
By Micky Barrett and Bobbi Carson
