Sources & further reading:

The human immune system is the most complex biological system we know, after the human brain, and yet, most of us never learn how it works. Or what it is. Your immune System consists of hundreds of tiny and two large organs, it has its own transport network spread throughout your body. Every day it makes hundreds of billions of fresh cells.

It is not some sort of abstract entity. Your immune system is YOU. Your biology protecting you from the billions of microorganisms that want to consume you and from your own perverted cells that turn into cancer. It's so manifold that it is impossible to cover in one video, so we’ll make a series looking at different aspects of it.

Today, what happens when your body is invaded and your first lines of defenses are engaged in a fight for life and death?

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
To get IMMUNE click 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. Ohai! I’m Philipp, the founder and head writer of Kurzgesagt and author of IMMUNE! Let me say a few words about it: IMMUNE is older than Kurzgesagt and I began working on it about a decade ago in university. The idea was to explore a super important but also extremely misunderstood and complicated topic and “translate” it into a language everybody could understand. I’ve done my best to basically write a super long Kurzgesagt video but with less of the limitations of a ten minute video. IMMUNE is a fascinating and fun journey through your own body, together we’ll be exploring mystery organs, murder universities, your enemies from viruses, bacteria and cancer (and how your immune system might have killed a cancer cell while you were reading the last few sentences) and the incredibly beautiful and amazing parts, cells and systems that keep you alive. After reading it you should not only gain a new appreciation for your own body but also experience disease differently. A flu or something more serious will not be this abstract thing but something you can sort of witness and imagine which mechanisms are active and which cells are doing what. At least personally, knowing how the immune system works always has given me great comfort when I felt unwell. Also 45 illustrated pages by the Kurzgesagt team make the book very pretty. Preorders are incredibly important in the world of books so if you are considering getting it, it would mean a lot if you could do that. Because preorders determine if a publisher will try to get the book into bookstores, so a lot of the book’s success depends on it. I’m incredibly grateful that so many of you have watched these videos in the last few years. And I hope you will give my first book a chance too. - Philipp

I just realized from reading the comments that the Helper T Cells giving Macrophages the motivation, and power boost they needed to fight the powerful forces of outnumbering Bacteria sounds like it came straight from an shounen anime. It's like the Helper T Cell says"We can't give up! This world is counting on us! I have a plan, here's what you need to do..." And then the Macrophages suddenly gain new super-saiyan forms that turn the tide almost instantaneously.

Thank you for a wonderful video. I have just contracted COVID and was lying in bed wondering what my immune system was doing to fight the virus. I'm a nursing sister and have always been fascinated about the wonder of our amazing immune systems that sadly get very little limelight. Apsolutely excellent!!!! I have so much hope and peace now. I will sleep peacefully while my wonderful immune system fights the battle. God bless you.

What's the difference between this video and Immune System Explained I - Bacteria Infection? I noticed there's a lot of overlap but the main difference is this one doesn't show many roles of the individual cells. Was some of that video inaccurate?
