The role of the immune system — a collection of structures and processes within the body — is to protect against disease or other potentially damaging foreign bodies. When functioning properly, the immune system identifies a variety of threats, including viruses, bacteria and parasites, and distinguishes them from the body's own healthy tissue.
Our bodies are complex, powerful machines. All machines need energy to do work. Every single cell in our body serves some function, and each cell needs this energy in order to fulfill their unique function. How we utilize this energy is through our metabolism; it is how we take the energy from the food we eat (and drink) and convert it into energy that our bodies can use？
Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by stimulating previously irreparable organs to heal themselves.
