The immune system is a vital part of a person’s body for fighting off outside organisms that can cause diseases and infections; it’s the body’s primary defense system. A weakened immune system can lead to serious health conditions, like staph infection or the flu, because the body is unable to handle the germs and bacteria you come into contact with every day.
