Logo    T-Cells

T Cells are produced in the thymus gland which works flat out for the first few years of life and then rapidly shuts down. Our lifetime supply of T cells diminishes with age and the process can be accelerated by stress and disease. After they go, so do we.

In this photo the T Cells (coloured white) are attacking a defective body cell. T Cells are an essential part of our immune system and their depletion in old age increases the risk of cancer.

Please be patient while the photo of the T Cells downloads. It is certainly worth the wait.
