Have you ever wondered why your body is able to fight of malevolent invasive organisms? You can thank white blood cells for this. White blood cells are like the soldiers of your body, fighting to defeat the invading organisms.. White blood cells account for 1 percent of the blood cell count of your body. There are five types of white blood cells. Monocytes have a longer lifespan the average WBC and help break down bacteria. Lymphocytes create antibodies to help to defeat invaders. Neutrophils desecrate and digest invading bacteria and fungi. Basophils are the “alarm sounders” of your body, warning other cells to respond to the enemy invasion. Eosinophils attack and kill parasites, cancer cells, and ameliorate the effects of allergies.
