THE LAW OF CLEAN AND UNCLEAN
YAHUAH has given us some sobering words a WARNING from the prophet Ezekiel; "Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they showed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them." (Ezek.22:26). Let us not profane YAHUAH or His holy temple (our bodies) by not discerning between clean and unclean products to eat. There is great reward awaiting those who are zealous for the way of YAHUAH and who are diligent in carrying out His will. You are call to be in the world but not of it. Corinthians I 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of YHWH; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of YHWH.
The same Laws that YAHUAH created in the beginning are the same Laws that suppose to be in place today. Malachi 3:6 For I am the YAHUAH, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. YAHUAH has a plan and when he was crucified it was to finish only those who have a FREE will to choose YAHUAH's WAYS, to be totally righteous as YAHUAH is the inherit eternal life. Received the Sacrificed by obeying his Ways (Torah) The covenant of YAHUAH is conditional, To be in his covenant is to obey his Way of life. Salvation is a Free gift, it will be wasted if you do not walk according to the Way of life that he choose for us. Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be Converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Corinthians II 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the YAHUAH, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Now lets look at scripture what it says about what we must Eat or Not Eat. Genesis 7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Deuteronomy 4:40 Thou shalt keep therefore his Statutes, and his Commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the YAHUAH thy Elohim giveth thee, for ever.
Leviticus 11:2-23 Speak unto the
children of Israel, (This is the ones that YAHUSHA said he came for, The Lost
Sheep or Israel Matthew 10:6 saying,) These are the beasts which ye shall
eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and
is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that
divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the
hoof; he is Unclean unto you. And the
coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto
you. And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is
unclean unto you. And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted,
yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Now here are a few examples of
animals that we should not eat, such as the
Rabbit, the Hare, the Swine which is the
Pig, the Camel, the Coney. The scriptures called
UNCLEAN. Of their
flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean
to you. These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins
and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all
that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they
shall be an abomination unto you: The sea is full of creature that we may eat,
but the UNCLEAN for man are Shrimp,
Clams, Oyster, Crabs, Lobster, Catfish this is because
they have fins, but they Do NOT have SCALES, squid, and other similar sea life.
Those are just a few examples. They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye
shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination
unto you. And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the
fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the
ossifrage, and the osprey, And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
Every raven after his kind; And the owl, and the night hawk, and the
cuckoo, and the hawk after his kind, And the little owl, and the cormorant, and
the great owl, And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, And the
stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. They are birds
that are unclean for man to eat, such as the
Eagle, Buzzard, Osprey, Vulture, the Kite
species, the Raven , the little Owl, the Cormorant, the Great Owl, the Swan,
Pelican, the Gier-Eagle, the Stork, the Heron species, the Hoopoe and the Bat.
All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. Yet
these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which
have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
There is even species of Insects that you may eat. Even these
of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his
kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
But all other flying creeping things, which have four
feet, shall be an abomination unto you. Now the King gives the order
and the Servants follow the instructions. Leviticus 11:44-47 For I am the
your Elohim: ye shall therefore Sanctify yourselves,
and ye shall be Holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile
yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
For I am the YAHUAH that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. This is the Law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth: To make a difference between the Unclean and the Clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.
YAHUAH is our Creator and as such he put LAWS in place to guide man on how to live their life, according to the scriptures if you brake his LAWS you are Sinning. Joshua 24:15 And if it seem Evil unto you to serve the YAHUAH, choose you this Day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the YAHUAH. Notice that he call other gods Evil! How can you call him god, when he is our Heavenly Father, we can't put him in the same Category? He is HOLY! His Name IS YAHUAH!! The Laws are in motion to keep in a set order for all of HIS creation. To become a member of YAHUAH Family we must understand this LAWS and Follow them, The entire universe is governed by the Law that YAHUAH Established. When His Laws are disregarded or disobeyed, there are certain, definite evil consequences. To observe and keep his LAWS brings physical and spiritual Blessings, Joy, Health and Long Life. Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that YAHUAH is no respecter of persons: Any time you choose not to obey YAHUAH's LAW you choosing to follow Satan's Ways. Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the Way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of Elohim, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of Elohim. Hebrews 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? Proverbs 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. Isaiah 65:3-5 people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick; Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels; Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a Fire that Burneth all the day. John I 2:16-17 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of YHWH abideth for ever.
Isaiah 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the YAHUAH. Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. I guess he is telling us some of the people are like dogs they are not worthy to receive, because of their corrupt mind. Mark 5:13 And forthwith YAHUSHA gave them leave. And the Unclean spirits went out, and entered into the SWINE: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) Does this mean two thousand years of Christianity WRONG Teachings and they are UNCLEAN!! and were choked in the sea. Luke 8:30-33 And YAHUSHA asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. And there was an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the Swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked. (He may be talking about the Lake of Fire where the Christians may end UP. Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of Elohim. To eat from the Tree of Life, you must obey the Torah, when you do this you are EATING from The TREE of LIFE. Listen to what the Spirit of YAHUAH is telling YOU.
Corinthians II 12:21 And lest, when I come again, my Elohim will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed. Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication,Uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of Elohim. John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the Conclusion of the Whole Matter: Fear YAHUAH, and KEEP his Commandments: for this is the Whole duty of Man.
LET THE LIGHT OPEN YOUR EYES TO THE TRUE WAY
Here Human Disease from the Encyclopedia Encarta 2000.
I INTRODUCTION Human Disease, in medicine, any harmful change that interferes with the normal appearance, structure, or function of the body or any of its parts. Since time immemorial, disease has played a role in the history of societies. It has affected?and been affected by?economic conditions, wars, and natural disasters. Indeed, the impact of disease can be far greater than better-known calamities. An epidemic of influenza that swept the globe in 1918 killed between 20 million and 40 million people. Within a few months, more than 500,000 Americans died?more than were killed during World War I (1914-1918), World War II (1939-1945), the Korean War (1950-1953), and the Vietnam War (1959-1975) combined.
Diseases have diverse causes, which can be classified into two broad groups: infectious and noninfectious. Infectious diseases can spread from one person to another and are caused by microscopic organisms that invade the body. Noninfectious diseases are not communicated from person to person and do not have, or are not known to involve, infectious agents. Some diseases, such as the common cold, are acute, coming on suddenly and lasting for no more than a few weeks. Other diseases, such as arthritis, are chronic, persisting for months or years, or recurring frequently.
Every disease has certain characteristic effects on the body. Some of these effects, called symptoms and signs, include fever, inflammation, pain, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and rashes, and are readily apparent to the patient. These symptoms offer important clues that help physicians and other health care professionals make a diagnosis. Many times, however, the symptoms point to several possible disorders. In those cases, doctors rely on medical tests, such as blood examinations and X rays, to confirm the diagnosis.
The course of a disease?that is, the path it follows from onset to end?can vary tremendously, depending largely on the individual and the treatment he or she receives. For example, otherwise healthy people usually recover quickly from a bout of pneumonia if given proper treatment, whereas pneumonia often proves fatal to people with a weakened immune system and to those who do not receive prompt, effective treatment. Some diseases run a different course depending on the patient?s age. Chicken pox, for instance, is usually mild in childhood but severe in adults. In the United States, only about 5 percent of chicken pox cases occur in people over the age of 20, but these cases account for 50 percent of all deaths from the disease.
Scientists, public health officials, and other members of the medical community work diligently to try to prevent disease epidemics. The battle is constant and is fought on many fronts. There have been many victories. Once-devastating diseases such as smallpox and diphtheria have been virtually eradicated, and many other diseases that once conferred automatic death sentences can now be either cured or controlled. At the same time, however, new killers have emerged. Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome are among at least 30 diseases that have been identified by scientists since the early 1970s. Other growing challenges, particularly in the affluent societies of industrialized nations, are so-called diseases of choice, such as alcohol abuse, drug abuse, or obesity, that result from addictive behavior, poor eating habits, or insufficient exercise.
Complicating matters further are societal changes. Increased international travel accelerates the spread of both new and old diseases: A person infected with an unusual virus on one continent can arrive?with the virus?on another continent in a matter of hours. Ships, planes, and trucks can transport disease-carrying organisms just as easily. In 1985 tires imported into Texas from Asia carried larvae of the Asian tiger mosquito, which is a carrier of dengue fever and other tropical diseases. Within five years, Asian tiger mosquitoes were living in 17 states. Changing dietary habits and the availability in local supermarkets of foods from all parts of the world contribute to an increase in food-borne illnesses. Some researchers worry that growing populations and the resulting crowded living conditions will increase the risk of epidemics.
II INFECTIOUS DISEASE
Infectious diseases are caused by microscopic organisms commonly called germs. Physicians refer to these disease-causing organisms as pathogens. Pathogens that infect humans include a wide variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans, and parasitic worms. In addition, it has been theorized that some proteins called prions may cause infectious diseases.
Bacteria are microscopic single-celled organisms at least 1 micron long. Most bacteria species are harmless to humans; indeed, many are beneficial (see eubacteria). But some are pathogens, including those that cause cholera, diphtheria, leprosy, plague, pneumonia, strep throat, tetanus, tuberculosis, and typhoid fever.
Viruses are tens or hundreds of times smaller than bacteria. They are not cellular, but consist of a core of genetic material surrounded by a protective coat of protein. Viruses are able to survive and reproduce only in the living cells of a host. Once a virus invades a living cell, it directs the cell to make new virus particles. These new viruses are released into the surrounding tissues, and seek out new cells to infect. The roll call of human diseases caused by viruses includes mumps, measles, influenza, rabies, hepatitis, poliomyelitis, smallpox, AIDS, and certain types of cancer.
Fungi are a varied group of generally small organisms that get their food from living or dead organic matter. They germinate from reproductive cells called spores, which often have a thick, resistant outer coat that protects against unfavorable environmental conditions. This enables spores to survive for long periods of time, which adds to the difficulty of treating fungal infections. Some fungi are external parasites of humans, causing skin conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot, and jock itch. Other fungi invade internal tissues; examples include yeast that infect the genital tract and several fungi species that cause a type of pneumonia.
Protozoans are single-celled, animal-like organisms that live in moist environments. Perhaps the most infamous pathogenic protozoans are species of the genus Plasmodium, which cause malaria, an infectious disease responsible for over 2 million deaths worldwide each year. Members of the genus Trypanosoma produce trypanosomiasis, also known as African sleeping sickness, and Chagas' disease. Other protozoans cause giardiasis, leishmaniasis, and toxoplasmosis.
Parasitic flatworms include tapeworms, which live in the intestines of a host organism. They have a ribbon-like body that may be up to 9 m (30 ft) in length, depending on the species. Hooks and suckers on the head attach a tapeworm to the intestinal wall, and a tough outer coating protects against the host's digestive juices. Another group of parasitic flatworms is flukes, which are responsible for several serious tropical diseases, most notably schistosomiasis. See Parasite.
Roundworms, or nematodes, are small, tubelike worms that are pointed at both ends. Species that infect human intestines include pinworms, hookworms, threadworms, and members of the genus Ascaris. Trichinella spiralis can invade human muscle tissue, often from eating infected pork that has been improperly prepared, causing a disease called trichinosis.
Prions are extremely tiny protein particles found in the brain, nerve, and muscle cells. A controversial theory states that prions cause disease by changing normal proteins into an abnormal shape. These mutated proteins in turn force other proteins to change shape, leading to destruction of tissue, primarily in the brain. Some researchers have hypothesized that prions cause transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, a group of rare infectious diseases that includes Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans, scrapie in sheep, and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (commonly known as mad cow disease) in cattle. Some evidence suggests that prion-related disease can be transmitted through food infected with mutated proteins.
B Spread of Infectious Disease
Some pathogens are spread from one person to another by direct contact. They leave the first person through body openings, mucous membranes, and skin wounds, and they enter the second person through similar channels. For example, the viruses that cause respiratory diseases such as influenza and the common cold are spread in moisture droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. A hand that was used to cover the mouth while coughing contains viruses that may be passed to doorknobs, so that the next person to touch the doorknob has a chance of picking up the infectious agent. The bacteria that cause some sexually transmitted diseases, including gonorrhea and syphilis, are transmitted during sexual contact.
Other pathogens involve an intermediary carrier, such as an insect. The malarial parasite, for example, spends part of its life cycle in mosquitoes, then enters a person's bloodstream when the mosquito bites the person. Many pathogens are spread through contaminated food and water. Cholera bacteria, for example, are spread through food and water contaminated with the excrement of infected people.
C New Infectious Diseases
In 1978 the United Nations adopted a resolution that set goals for eradicating infectious disease by the year 2000. This lofty goal proved impossible to achieve. The years since the resolution was adopted have seen the emergence of new killers and a rise in the incidence of such ancient scourges as malaria, yellow fever, and tuberculosis.
Among the diseases new to science are AIDS, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, Legionnaires? disease, and Lyme disease. AIDS has been the most deadly of all the new diseases, but even it has not taken as high a toll as malaria, tuberculosis, and other diseases that have been around for centuries. Some newly identified disease-causing agents for diseases that have been recognized for a long time include Human T-lymphotropic virus I (HTLV-1), which can cause some cases of non-Hodgkin?s lymphoma, a type of cancer originating in the lymphatic system; and HTLV-2, which is associated with hairy-cell leukemia, a rare type of cancer of the blood.
In most cases, the reasons for the emergence of a new disease are unknown. One exception is Legionnaires? disease. It is caused by a bacterium that was not identified until after an outbreak in 1976 at an American Legion convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Once identified, however, scientists were able to retrospectively identify earlier epidemics of the disease, and realized that each year the bacterium is responsible for thousands of cases of pneumonia.
Environmental changes may be responsible for some new diseases. Scientists speculate that the viruses for some of the deadly hemorrhagic fevers that have surfaced in Africa, such as Ebola and Marburg disease, have long existed in certain wild animals. As people have encroached on wilderness areas they have come into contact with the infected animals, and the viruses have jumped from their traditional animal host to a new human host, with deadly consequences.
In addition to new diseases, well-known pathogens may change, or mutate, creating new, virulent strains. Influenza viruses are among those that mutate frequently, which explains why flu shots?vaccines that use modified or killed versions of the influenza agent to stimulate a protective immune response in the body?are given annually, and why epidemics of influenza periodically occur. The strains of flu virus that were most prevalent one year differ from those that bedevil humans the next year. Vaccines that protected against last year's flu virus may need to be altered to be effective against today's most common strains.
A similar problem occurs when mutations in infectious agents result in resistance to medicines that had been effective treatments. The bacteria that cause bronchitis, meningitis, tuberculosis, and pneumonia are among many that have developed strains that are resistant to at least some antibiotics. As a result, doctors have fewer options for treating the diseases and preventing their spread.
III NONINFECTIOUS DISEASE
Diseases not known to be caused by infectious agents include the three leading killers in the United States and other developed countries: heart disease, most cancers, and cerebrovascular disease (decreased blood circulation in the brain). Noninfectious illnesses include disorders as terrifying as Alzheimer's disease, which robs victims of their memory and their ability to reason, and as pesky as poison ivy.
Degenerative disorders, including arthritis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, involve the progressive breakdown of tissues and loss of function of parts of the body. Joints gradually become stiff; bones become brittle; blood vessels become blocked by deposits of fat. The incidence of these problems increases with age (see Aging), and, in at least some cases, progression can be slowed by good health habits.
Environmental factors play critical roles in numerous noninfectious diseases. Exposure to carbon monoxide can have long-term effects on the heart and vision. Lead in drinking water can impair children's mental abilities and increase blood pressure in adults. Occupational exposure to coal dust, cotton dust, and asbestos predisposes workers to black lung, brown lung, asbestosis, and other respiratory diseases (see Occupational and Environmental Diseases). Other diseases are caused by an addiction to a harmful substance. Tobacco smoking is a prime culprit in emphysema, as well as lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. Excessive use of alcohol can lead to liver disease, brain damage, and nutritional disorders.
Repetitive stress injuries result from repeating certain motions, usually from a fixed or awkward posture. Twisting items on a factory assembly line, carrying bulging mailbags, using vibrating tools such as pneumatic hammers, or practicing the piano or a tennis stroke for hours on end can all result in pain, inflammation, and permanent nerve damage.
A Hereditary and Congenital Diseases
Hereditary diseases such as hemophilia, sickle-cell anemia, Huntington's disease, muscular dystrophy, and Tay-Sachs disease are caused by mutated genes inherited from one or both parents (see Genetic Disorders). Certain other diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and some types of cancer, often run in families, which suggests that heredity is at least partially responsible for their development.
Congenital diseases, or birth defects, are disorders that are present at birth. Some are hereditary, others develop while a baby is in its mother's uterus or during the process of delivery. For example, if the mother contracts German measles, or rubella, during the early stages of pregnancy, her child may be born with heart defects, eye cataracts, deafness, or mental retardation. Use of alcohol during pregnancy can cause fetal alcohol syndrome, characterized by mental and physical retardation. Abnormal development of any body part in a fetus may produce a congenital defect; for example, if walls that separate the chambers of the heart fail to form completely, the baby is born with congenital heart disease.
B Immunological Diseases
Immunological diseases occur when the immune system, which normally protects against infections, malfunctions. The most common types of immunological diseases are allergies, autoimmune diseases, and immune deficiencies.
An allergy is an abnormal reaction of the immune system to foreign substances, such as plant pollen, fungal spores, animal danders, medications, and foods. Rhus dermatitis is an allergy caused by contact with urushiol, an oil resin produced by poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac.
Autoimmune diseases develop when the immune system goes awry and attacks the body's own tissues. Autoimmune disorders includes lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile-onset diabetes, and myasthenia gravis. The causes are unknown, although some scientists suspect the diseases may be triggered in some cases by a pathogen, such as a virus, or other environmental factor.
Immune deficiency diseases develop when the immune system becomes impaired, resulting in more common, frequent, or severe infections. The immune system may be damaged by a genetic abnormality or by illness, injury, the use of a strong drug such as those used in chemotherapy, or malnutrition.
C Deficiency Diseases
Deficiency diseases result from insufficient amounts of various healthful nutrients in the diet. Examples include scurvy, caused by a deficiency of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid; pellagra, caused by a deficiency of niacin; and osteoporosis, caused at least in part by a lack of calcium. Deficiency diseases are most prevalent in poverty- or war-stricken areas of the world, where malnutrition is widespread. Deficiency diseases are also found in more affluent nations where food is prevalent but people?s food choices or behavior do not provide well-rounded nutrition, resulting in such disorders as anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and anemia.
IV THE FIGHT AGAINST DISEASE A Natural Defenses
The skin and mucous membranes form the body's first line of defense against disease. Most microscopic pathogens, or microbes, cannot pass through unbroken skin, although they can easily enter through cuts and other wounds. Mucous membranes protect internal organs that are connected with the outside of the body. These membranes, which line the respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive tracts, secrete a sticky fluid called mucus, which traps microbes. The mucus may then be expelled from the body, perhaps in a cough or sneeze or in feces. If the mucus is swallowed, digestive juices kill the microbes.
Small hairlike projections on the lining of the nose, throat, and bronchial tubes work in conjunction with mucus to trap and remove foreign substances. In the ears, tiny hairs plus a sticky wax defend against the entry of germs. Tears secreted by the lachrymal gland wash away germs and other small objects that may enter the lid area of the eye. Tears also contain a protein that kills certain germs.
If a pathogen breaches the body?s outer barriers, the defenses of the immune system spring into action. Some of these defenses are effective against a variety of invaders, while others are tailor-made to fight a specific organism. White blood cells called phagocytes constantly travel through the bloodstream on the lookout for foreign objects. If they come upon a microorganism, they surround, engulf, and digest it.
If the infection persists and there are too many organisms for the phagocytes to fight by themselves, the immune system produces proteins called antibodies. Each antibody is designed to combat a particular antigen, or foreign protein. Two types of white blood cells are involved in this process. B cells release the antibody, which attaches to the outer covering of the antigen, marking it for destruction. T cells attack the tagged antigen and also stimulate B cells into action. Once the body has produced antibodies to a specific microorganism, it generally is immune to future invasions by that organism. That is why people who have had chicken pox or measles as a child will not get the disease again as an adult. The reason people get one cold after another is that each cold is caused by a different virus strain.
