WATCH: White Blood Cells Swarm and Attack Parasite in Fascinating Video

The living body is pretty amazing. If you need proof, just check out this video that shows the immune system in action. White blood cells are part of the body’s first line of defense when it comes to protecting the body, and fighting off infection and intruders.

The video above shows a parasite in the system as it’s aggressively attacked and broken down by white blood cells. Amazingly, it only takes a matter of seconds for the parasite to be eliminated as the cells swallow and break it down.

It is a stunning visual of how the body is constantly working to protect and defend against many forms of infection. Through cell-to-cell communication, the white blood cells can signal to alert the immune system to danger and synchronize a precise attack to the affected area.

Check out the video above and marvel at how our bodies work.
