Within minutes of infection, the innate intelligence of the body summons a wave of neutrophils which arrives at the site, the advance guard of the body’s professional “eating cells”. Each neutrophil convulsed by the chemical signals sent by the innate intelligence of the body, thrusts a portion of its cell body between the crevices in the blood vessel walls, squeezes through, and slithers toward the microbes. A struggle ensues.
The bacteria, dodging their attackers, spew powerful toxins that can disable or kill the neutrophils and surrounding cells. A persistent neutrophil seizes a bacterium and wraps a portion of its own cell membrane around the microbe. But sucking the membrane inward, deep into its body, the neutrophil creates a miniature sac for its prey.
AMAZING ISN’T IT?
