Immune System vs White House
Your Body = President
Immune system = White House
Antigen = virus/bad guy/terrorist
Antibodies = Bodyguards
T-Cells = Secret Service
B-Cells = Security Desk/Surveillance (cameras, walkies, alert Bodyguards)
Immunity = knowing the enemy and never letting them in
Vaccine = “Wanted-Poster” recognize bad guys if they show up. Keeps everyone on their toes
Helper T-Cells = SWAT Team
Killer T-Cells = Sniper (got the go-ahead to take the shot)
Lymphocytes = CIA (figures out how to respond to foreign invaders)
Your BODY is like the PRESIDENT.
Your IMMUNE SYSTEM acts as the WHITE HOUSE. The white house and all it encompasses' job is to protect the president, just as your immune system protects you. There is a lot that makes up the ‘White House,’ much as there is a lot that makes up your immune system.
ANTIGENS are intruders in our bodies, much like there could be a BAD GUY/TERRORIST in the White House.
Our body’s defense to antigens are ANTIBODIES, they protect us by stopping the intruders from harming us, much like a BODYGUARD protects the president.
T-CELLS are also fighters that help take care of intruders, much like the SECRET SERVICE will step in to protect the president.
The B-CELLS in our body are responsible for producing those antibodies, much like a SECURITY DESK or SURVEILLANCE TEAM that could call in more reinforcements.
