                                  What makes the immune system weaker?

Anything that stops or slows your immune system, like lack of food or lack of sleep.

                                              Is there an vitamin that helps you?

Vitamin A is really good.

                                                       How do the poor cope?

Scientists have invented a rice called Golden Rice. It's called "Golden Rice" because it is full of vitamin A and it's turned yellow.

                                    How many immune cells do you have?

You have 40,000,000,000,000 (40 trillion) immune cells in your body. Your Immune cells take up only 1 percent of your cells.

                                          Do they have another name?

Yes they do. They are also called white blood cells.

                                      What are the two types of cells?

B cells protect you by making antibodies. Antibodies are little 'sticky bits' that stick to viruses and bacteria when they get inside the body.  

The T cells will find cells that are covered with 'sticky bits' or antibodies, and eat them up. T cells can also spot cells that are sick because they are infected with viruses or haven't been made properly and may cause a cancer.
