White Blood Cells

What are White Blood Cells?

White Blood Cells are cells in your body that are part of the Immune System. The Immune System is your body’s inner defense system. They hunt down viruses and bacteria and help clean them up.

What do White Blood Cells do?

White Blood Cells hunt down and get rid of foreign objects like viruses and bacteria. Here is how they do it:

  1. The White Blood cells find a virus or bacteria
  2. They identify the virus or bacteria
  3. They start multiplying themselves to start the clean up
  4. They release antibodies which hook onto the virus and get rid of it

In conclusion, White Blood Cells are a very important part of our Immune System and keep our body clean and tidy.
