The Two Major Pillars of the Immune System

  1. Natural or innate: the foundation – the organs that we’re born with like skin, the thymus, bone marrow, lymph nodes & mucous membranes. Has no memory.
  2. Acquired or adaptive: mission control – has precision memory – exposure to germs & vaccines triggers growth of killer cells, antibodies & plasma proteins that remember same or similar germs from prior infections & rapidly attacks them!

These two pillars compliment each other to achieve effective immune system function.
