    You are not a person, you are a planet, made of roughly 40 trillion cells. There is so much of you, that if your cells were human-sized, you would be as big as 20 Mount Everests. For your creepy-crawly inhabitants, this makes your body an ecosystem, rich in resources and warmth and space. A perfect place to move into and have a family. While some of these guests are welcome, most are not. Your immune system is the guardian of this planet, the force tasked with protecting yourself against the constant danger of invasion.

    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell  11 meses atrás +14428

    Hey everybody! Today finally marks the release of “Immune - A Journey Into the Mysterious System that Keeps You Alive”. The book I've sorta started writing a decade ago!
    You can get it here: kgs.link/ImmuneBook - It’s available in English and German and at online retailers it should be available in pretty much all countries too.
    First we had to push the release back because of cargo trouble and then because so many of you pre-ordered that we didn’t have enough copies for the original launch day! Thank you so, so much for that!
    Tonight I'm doing an AMA on Reddit where you can ask me about Kurzgesagt, science communication and of course the book! Join here: kgs.link/KGS_AMA
    In any case - Kurzgesagt is a passion project and it's just so heartwarming how wholesome and supportive our community and viewers are. I'm incredibly grateful to have this job and to be able to make content for all of you, video or printed. - Philipp

      Basically oversimplified:
      Part 1 of your immune system is a 1tb ram, amd epic, 126gb m.2ssd.
      Part 2 of your immune system is a 4gb ram, i5 2400, 16tb hard disc.
      Is that about right?

      Just because in paper you have weapons against them doesn't mean you'll find the problem, a sort of camouflage shenanigans can be going on or using your weapons against you which in perspective your immune system is more like a nuke and you know that is going to do some massive damage, I mean it's its entire point

    As someone with two immune disorders (one of which is actively destroying my liver and one that *has* destroyed my colon) these videos are both interesting and horrifying. I don't really like hearing how scientists need to figure out one of biologys most complex systems to find a "cure" for my conditions.

    I think the best way for the immune system to work would be if it were controlled by the brain. For example, you would tell killer T cells to stop using a particular protein cancer cells are waving as flags that say 'im a cuvilian' to recognise civilian body cells. Also, there should be two parts of the adaptive immune system, the current one and another one. It will involve sets immune cells specially suited against SPECIFIC DISEASES. Some people are immune against, for example, HIV. If we were infected by this disease, we should have a very specific set of immune cells without the weaknesses our normal immune system has in fighting HIV. These sets of cells should be like a whole immune system optimised like HIV was the only disease in the world. Also, why isn't our adaptive immune system on all the time? B cells always making antibodies, Killer T cells scanning for disease.Then we'd almost NEVER get sick.
    Well it's now a possibility with genetic engineering.

      I am highly under the impression we are being microwaved (electromagnetic radiation poisoning) my sister took the "Moderna" shot and still contracted COVID
      this month. She lost her sense of taste and smell the same thing occurs with electromagnetic radiation poisoning. The body immune system goes in to action the same way and in some cases attack the host. My sister increased her daily garlic intake which included supplements believe it or not she is doing well, she told me about the satellites communication system is all microwave transmission surrounding the planet and it what our bodies are reacting to which is why there is no such thing as COVID contaminated blood samples.

    I love how the title of this video and the contents of their most recent video completely contradict each other. We aren't immune by any means to Naegleria fowleri, but at least we technically do have the blueprint for antibodies against it. It just so happens that those antibodies are ineffective.. along with everything else..

    I've been a doctor for more years than I care to remember, and this is, without doubt, the best explanation I've seen of how the immune system works. The hints about hypervariable regions, HLA antigens and genetic recombination are irresistible. I've always found the immune system to be utterly fascinating, and so I'm looking forward tremendously to reading the book - which I've just ordered. You guys are the best.

    Fantastic video but the one question I have is if there is a way for the thymus to instruct T cells to self destruct how come bacteria can’t evolve these same instructions? further how come they can’t only use proteins that are recognized as body systems to fly under the radar? The book sounds very interesting and I may have to buy it and see if these questions can be answered.

      ​@Zach B Here are some statistics. This is regarding the US:
      From March -> March starting in say, 2000 to 2020, about 2.9 to 2.8 million people died per year. From March 2020 to March 2021, 3.4 million people died. 600,000 more people died than normal. Deaths went up nearly 20% in one year. Guess where those deaths came from. It could have been a lot worse, but it also sure as hell could have been better.
      Beyond just deaths, millions of others got sick & hospitalized. Many hospital systems were stressed. People with other ailments had to wait longer, especially since hospitals have to be extra careful with highly contagious patients.
      So yeah, I'm going to say all those epidemiologists who are, let's say, SEVERAL orders of magnitude more educated in these topics than you, might be aware of "statistics"

    my ex was antivaxxer because she said that we should only rely on our immune system, I told her that while yes our immune system is pretty damn good at its job, it's just not fast enough. Every one has cancer, only difference is that most of the time it gets snuffed out before it becomes a problem. We have so many fail-safes to prevent cancer such as the internal cell checkpoints and apoptosis and even if it gets past it the T cells are already programmed to kill any cancer cells they find, reason why people still end up in the hospital is because the cancer manages to outpace the immune system
