        Immune Cells in Action

        In this video segment from The Secret of Life, you'll look through a microscope at a virus attacking a cell. Viruses continue to replicate until they break apart the host cell and start spreading throughout the body, destroying healthy cells along the way. You'll learn how the immune system overpowers a virus with white blood cells and creates the antibodies that kill the same types of viruses quickly if they return.
