    You are not a person, you are a planet, made of roughly 40 trillion cells. There is so much of you, that if your cells were human-sized, you would be as big as 20 Mount Everests. For your creepy-crawly inhabitants, this makes your body an ecosystem, rich in resources and warmth and space. A perfect place to move into and have a family. While some of these guests are welcome, most are not. Your immune system is the guardian of this planet, the force tasked with protecting yourself against the constant danger of invasion.

Hey everybody! Today finally marks the release of “Immune – A Journey Into the Mysterious System that Keeps You Alive”. The book I've sorta started writing a decade ago! You can get it here: https://kgs.link/ImmuneBook – It’s available in English and German and at online retailers it should be available in pretty much all countries too. First we had to push the release back because of cargo trouble and then because so many of you pre-ordered that we didn’t have enough copies for the original launch day! Thank you so, so much for that! Tonight I'm doing an AMA on Reddit where you can ask me about Kurzgesagt, science communication and of course the book! Join here: https://kgs.link/KGS_AMA In any case – Kurzgesagt is a passion project and it's just so heartwarming how wholesome and supportive our community and viewers are. I'm incredibly grateful to have this job and to be able to make content for all of you, video or printed. – Philipp

And yet we still question the existence of a creator. The logic and intelligence we find in nature is so incredible, it is impossible to think that we are just merely a product of an explosion. Think of the most complex structure ever built by human hands, now try and buy into the idea that some day a similar structure will be developed and constructed in the far future without any intelligent intervention.

@ionescho Modern science admits that at some point, something had to have come from nothing. Science and humans can't even prove infinity exists, nor can it even come close to grasping an omnipotent being. The failures, devolution, decay, death and pain we experience every day, are results of a gift from God: free will. I'm not here to argue, so I won't explain anymore unless you want to. Btw stop gaslighting me by calling me confused

@CrazyCaptain it's not chance. Mutations happen by chance but the selection process that let's only the usefull ones survice is NOT chance. That's where you get confused. And human beings are not perfect, there are a lot of things that can and DO fail. Why would a omnipotent and benevolent god make something that can fail?

Woah... This sounds like a awesome superpower for a novel. Imagine if you will, a character who has the ability to drastically enhances the speed and potency of its immune system and other systems of your body. Recognizing threats and the necessary proteins needed that took a fraction of a second to do. It sounds a nerdier way of saying regeneration but the science and the logic behind it is amazing

I am highly under the impression we are being microwaved (electromagnetic radiation poisoning) my sister took the "Moderna" shot and still contracted COVID this month. She lost her sense of taste and smell the same thing occurs with electromagnetic radiation poisoning. The body immune system goes in to action the same way and in some cases attack the host. My sister increased her daily garlic intake which included supplements believe it or not she is doing well, she told me about the satellites communication system is all microwave transmission surrounding the planet and it what our bodies are reacting to which is why there is no such thing as COVID contaminated blood samples.

I think the best way for the immune system to work would be if it were controlled by the brain. For example, you would tell killer T cells to stop using a particular protein cancer cells are waving as flags that say 'im a cuvilian' to recognise civilian body cells. Also, there should be two parts of the adaptive immune system, the current one and another one. It will involve sets immune cells specially suited against SPECIFIC DISEASES. Some people are immune against, for example, HIV. If we were infected by this disease, we should have a very specific set of immune cells without the weaknesses our normal immune system has in fighting HIV. These sets of cells should be like a whole immune system optimised like HIV was the only disease in the world. Also, why isn't our adaptive immune system on all the time? B cells always making antibodies, Killer T cells scanning for disease.Then we'd almost NEVER get sick. Well it's now a possibility with genetic engineering.

Your videos never fail to amaze me, but this video is on another level. Is the pinnacle of science divulgation, something that scientists should aim for. The systems you are explaining are complicated even for those with biology knowledge, but you explain them with an easiness and preciseness worth of mentioning. Thank you so much for your videos, and keep it up! :D

I've been a doctor for more years than I care to remember, and this is, without doubt, the best explanation I've seen of how the immune system works. The hints about hypervariable regions, HLA antigens and genetic recombination are irresistible. I've always found the immune system to be utterly fascinating, and so I'm looking forward tremendously to reading the book - which I've just ordered. You guys are the best.

@Lacks they would probably all instantly die. You can’t shrink animal organs like that without killing it, and a t-cell would most likely crumble into its own weight. What a quick and tragic way to die.

She lost her sense of taste and smell the same thing occurs with electromagnetic radiation poisoning. The body immune system goes in to action the same way and in some cases attack the host. My sister increased her daily garlic intake which included supplements believe it or not she is doing well, she told me about the satellites communication system is all microwave transmission surrounding the planet and it what our bodies are reacting to which is why there is no such thing as COVID contaminated blood samples.

@Calango Seco Ah, I live in the US. healthcare isn’t free here, and can be very expensive especially for treating stuff like cancer. Some people can’t afford to go to the doctor yearly, and some people can’t afford mental help either. That’s part of the reason why I got mad at you for telling everyone to just be healthy by exercising or getting more sleep. There’s also the fact that a lot of job shifts can take more than half a day long, and the fact that you have to wake up early for school, so getting little sleep is very common.

@HT L Yeah, that's what Kurzgesagt is. Kurzgesagt is all about explaining superficial knowledge about stuff, and if you want to know more, you can read into their sources. Kurzgesagt means "In a nutshell"

@HT L The funny thing is that Kurzgesagt themselves pointed this out in their "we lied to you" video, in that their videos are really just a primer to get people interested in the topic and to give a broad overview of the subject. They're meant as a complement, not a replacement, to formal education that can fill in all the details and complexity that a 10 minute video simply can't contain.

Comments like this pop up everywhere and I never get the argument. I mean, this is easy because it only presents the most superficial concepts in a very simplified manner. For every piece of information given, there are almost always a multitude of "why"s and "how"s left unanswered and unexplained, and you only need to takes a glance at their list of source materials to realize just how much detail was omitted in the first place. Again, videos like this do an excellent job at raising awareness and piquing interests, but unless you follow it up with some actual studying and digging (which certainly won't be anywhere as easy) these are just fun trivia at best. There is no comparison with a proper education.

True The school system isn't very effective, from what I currently understand students don't really remember the things we learn in school. And as a addition- The subjects school teaches aren't important at all unless you specifically wanna specialized in a subject. I've been watching videos on the same subjects in school- And somehow enjoy those subjects much more watching a video that I'm actually curious about I hope the school system changes, I'll probably be out of school by then if/when it does lol

Hello Guys :) First of all I really dig your channel and videos. To make them even more enjoyable please stop using phrases like "changing GENETIC CODE". Genetic code is not a DNA or genetic sequence. Genetic code is like English-French dictionary, which tells to Ribosomes how to create protein base on given genetic sequence. Three out of four Nucleobases (Adenine (A), Cytosine (C), Guanine (G), [Thymine (T) Please remember about Ribosomes and a difference between DNA and genetic code. Thanks guys, Love you guys :)
