In brief: Calling the cavalry
When we're sick, our bodies are waging a war against germs.
Our immune system sends out an army (of white blood cells and special chemicals) to fight off those enemy germs. We can keep our inner army strong by eating right, moving at least 30 minutes every day, sleeping well and balancing work/play.
