The Immune System

By: Erin Cordero and Josh Daugherty

How the system interacts:

The immune system protects all other systems and tissues by fighting off foreign organisms and cells. The immune cells reorganize as a cell and attack the foreign cell or organism. There are two systems that have a similar function the Integumentary and the Circulatory, and the Endocrine Systems.

The parts:

The Immune system is made up of the spleen, the tonsils and adenoids, Lymph nodes, Lymphatic vessels, Thymus, Appendix, Peyer's patches, and the Bone marrow

How it works

The immune system is composed of many different biological structures in the body. This systems detects and protects against diseases and different types of infections. The immune system is able to decide whether the infectious organism is part of the body or not.

What the system needs

The immune system needs your everyday proteins, and basic foods to function. As long as you keep your body healthy the immune system will stay healthy as well so you don't get sick. This system needs to be treated with a lot of care because its one of the systems you NEED to be alive.

Homeostasis:

The immune system maintains homeostasis by blocking pathogens from disrupting the body's normal functions. If homeostasis isn't maintained you will get sick or badly infected. A basic illness if homeostasis isn't maintained is The Common Cold.
