Immunity and Diseases

The job of the immune system is -

To seek out, recognize and destroy pathogens i.e. disease-causing substances or organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. In fighting off these foreign bodies, our body produces such symptoms of illness like fever and malaise.

In most people, most of the time, the immune system does its job efficiently, but problems in its response to the environment are common. An overactive immune system, for example, results in autoimmune disorders. In these cases, for unknown reasons the immune system mistakes normal, healthy tissues for foreign invaders and attacks them.

Examples of autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Type 1 diabetes, scleroderma (skin hardening) and myasthenia gravis (destruction of muscle proteins).
People who are doing research suspect that chronic fatigue syndrome and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may be autoimmune diseases as well.

Another type of immune error occurs when the system overreacts to something harmless, as in cases of allergies. In the case of hay fever, for example, the immune system mistakes pollen for a dangerous invader and reacts with a powerful and sometimes deadly response.

The opposite occurs when the immune system fails to respond adequately, resulting in immune deficiency diseases. AIDS is the best known example. Other immune deficiency disorders are inherited, extremely rare, and potentially fatal.

For people who are generally healthy, it's possible for the immune system to become temporarily depressed. When this happens, fighting pathogens becomes more difficult, and as a result, your body becomes more susceptible to infections, which hit you harder and stay with you longer than, they would otherwise.
