They’re not a drug, and they already attack cancer cells. Plus, you can increase their cancer-killing effectiveness starting right now. Here are 3 natural ways to boost their cancer-killing effectiveness...


That's what I'm saying, haters know their full name, age, what they look like, height, weight, address, how many blood cells they have and claim that they don't give a shit and that they're 'irrelevant' boi gtfo


Cytokine alarms accelerate memory T-cell recruitment: a, During a primary immune response, innate immune cells in the body's epithelial surfaces attempt to control the pathogen, and secrete chemokine proteins that sound an alarm to cells of the adaptive immune system. b, After infection, some pathogen-specific CD8+ T cells survive in lymphoid organs and as circulating or tissue-resident memory (TRM) T cells.

Type 1: Plain old allergy (asthma, anaphylaxis, atopy) Type 2: Antibody-dependent, cytotoxic (think of autoimmune hemolytic anemia) Type 3: Immune complex disease (like a lot of the autoimmune conditions: rheumatoid, lupus) Type 4: Delayed/Cell-Mediated (mediated by T cells, T cells are slower to react than antibodies, so this reaction takes a couple days) Type 5: Receptor-mediated autoimmune disease (Graves, myasthenia gravis)
