In biology, the term immunity refers to the body’s capacity to protect itself against menacing substances. These threats includemicrobes (virus, bacteria, fungi, and parasites), cancerous cells or foreign bodies (splinter or transplanted organ). Aging and illness have been recognized as factors that can weaken the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to infections. Scientific evidence indicate that diet, tobacco smoking, sleep, exercise, level of stress, and living conditions all have an impact on the quality of our immune response. Health and immunity are closely related, hence taking care of our health on a daily basis can improve our immunity, and vice-versa.
