Doctors called the root cause of low immunity.
Experts from the University of London believe that malnutrition may cause immunosuppression. This is evidenced by the number of studies that they managed to hold.
From the words of the scientists themselves, it follows that the factor of poor nutrition certainly affects the human immune system. So, the observation of a certain group of people confirmed that the subjects were more often subjected to minor viral infections, but also in their blood, it was observed a decrease in the number of leukocytes. In addition, the possible manifestations of different disorders in the membranes of the skin and the intestinal tract.
Experts explain this by the fact that due to the lack of necessary nutrients that go into our body through food, the immune system is depleted. That is what leads to the fact that the protective cells become unable to fight even minor infections and viruses.
It should be noted that even if a person starts to get all the necessary components for healthy life, the consequences of poor diet will affect health for a long time. Also some of these diseases tend to be inherited because of their ability to “intervene” in human DNA.
At the moment employees of the University of London noted that the relationship between good nutrition and human immunity are not well understood. This implies that they will continue a more detailed observation of this “relationship”.
