5 The Wrong Myth About the Human Immune System that Needs to Be Straightened


There are many ways you can improve your body's immune system. However, there are still people who believe in the myth of the immune system which is clearly wrong. What are the myths?

Myths about the immune system are proven wrong




Myth # 1: Take vitamins to ward off disease


Wrong. Many people take high doses of vitamin C and vitamin A so they don't get sick easily.

In fact, the daily multivitamin or supplement that you take does not function to boost the immune system. The vitamins and supplements you take in function help to fill in the lack of nutrients in your body that may not be fulfilled from daily food.

Most vitamins are also not good. Excess vitamin A can make you poisoned, marked by yellowing of the skin, nausea and vomiting, even symptoms of liver damage (liver). This condition is called hypervitaminosis A.

Myth # 2: Closing your mouth prevents the transmission of coughs or flu




Wrong. Closing your mouth when coughing or sneezing is the right ethic to limit the spread of the disease, but still does not necessarily close the opportunity to spread it to other people around you. In fact, it is your own immune system that determines how much risk you can contract the disease.

The risk of transmitting diseases such as flu and coughing is not only a "responsibility" of the person who is sick, but also comes from yourself. If your immune system is in prime condition when it is close to someone who is sick with the flu, you will not easily get infected even though the person does not close his mouth when sneezing.

Vice versa if you are wearing a mask to prevent breathing the virus or turning your face when someone sneezes. If your immune system is already weak before being exposed to a virus, wearing a mask will not help much to reduce the risk of transmission

Not all viruses and bacteria can enter the body through the nose. Certain viruses and bacteria can land on the surface of objects and survive for hours. Touching contaminated objects can widen your chances of contracting the disease. Therefore wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face, especially the nose, mouth, and eyes with dirty hands.

Myth # 3: Exercise makes it easy to get tired


Wrong. Exercise will not make your immune system decrease, as long as you don't overdo it. Exercise can actually help strengthen the immune system against certain diseases. Routine exercise can also stabilize blood pressure and blood sugar to maintain fitness.

Myth # 4 children must take vitamins


Wrong. Children do not need supplements to strengthen their endurance. In principle, such as the consumption of vitamins or supplements in adults, the intake of supplemental supplements is intended solely to meet the nutritional needs of children if deemed necessary.

If you are able to meet your child's daily nutritional needs through a healthy and balanced diet, the child does not need additional vitamins or supplements.

Myth # 5: vaccines make your immune system weak


Wrong. Many parents hesitate or even reject their vaccinated children. They assume that the vaccine is an active virus that is intentionally inserted into the body so that it can reduce the child's resistance.

This vaccine myth has been proven wrong by many modern medical literature. Children have the natural ability to protect themselves from viruses and bacteria since they are still in the womb. Even though the child's immune system is not as strong as an adult, so it still needs to be strengthened by immunization to encourage the body's immune system to work better.


The vaccine actually strengthens the child's immune system and does not damage or interfere with other healthy body cells.
