Thymus & Kaitannya Dengan Sistem Immune Manusia

PERNAHKAH ANDA DENGAR MENGENAI TIMUS (THYMUS)??
*****************
Saya sedang membaca satu buku mengenai SISTEM IMMUNE and came across this term: TIMUS a.k.a THYMUS. I am so curious about this Organ and start to read more about it and what I found is very interesting, at the same time it makes me worried.. 😦

Saya salin semula di sini, apa itu THYMUS, agar kita dapat lebih memahami tubuh badan kita sendiri dan mula mencari jawapan terhadap permasalahan yg kita hadapi sebelum ini.

Thymus ini hanya aktif bermula dari zaman kanak-kanak sehingga akil baligh (puberty) dan selepas akil baligh, thymus ini akan mengecut perlahan-lahan dan di gantikan dengan lemak. Thymus ini akan menghasilkan semua T cells yang diperlukan tubuh sebaik sahaja kita mencecah akil baligh.


Apa yang merisaukan saya, beberapa aspek kehidupan moden kita hari ini telah menjejaskan SISTEM IMMUNE tubuh kita dan mendedahkannya kepada penyakit dan ia berlaku sejak anak kita kecil lagi. Di saat organ dan kalenjar utama sistem immune anak kita sedang aktif dan bekerja keras menghasilkan T cells, dalam pada tidak sedar, sistem immune mereka diserang!

Bagaimana SISTEM IMMUNE mereka menjadi lemah? Di bawah adalah antara penyebabnya. Sit back, tarik nafas, tahan nafas dan baca perlahan-lahan. Ya..saya juga terkejut..sama seperti anda when I discover the connection between this..

😣 ANTIBIOTICS
😣 XTRAY
😣 SUNTIKAN VAKSIN
😣 KEMOTERAPI
😣 PEMBEDAHAN TIDAK PERLU
😣 MEMBUANG TONSILS & APENDIKS
😣 MEMBUANG LIMPA
😣 MAKANAN YG MEMUDARATKAN SPT GULA, LEMAK, SUSU LEMBU & MAKANAN TIRUAN
😣 RADIASI ELEKTROMAGNETIK (DARI HP DAN MENARA PEMANCARNYA, KETUHAR GELOMBANG MIKRO, TV, KOMPUTER, IPAD & LAIN-LAIN PERALATAN ELEKTRIK)
😣 RADIASI PENGIONAN (XTRAY, BAHAN RADIOAKTIF SEPERTI PETROLEUM, URANIUM DAN ARANG BATU
😣 RADIASI ULTRAUNGU (UV) DARI PANCARAN MATAHARI
😣 ASAP EKZOS KENDERAAN
😣 TEKANAN, ALCOHOL, MEROKOK, TIDUR LEWAT
😣 BAHAN PENAMPAL GIGI (MERCURI @ RAKSA)
😣 BAHAN KOSMETIK
😣 PLASTIK DAN CAT
😣 BAHAN KIMIA PENGGANGU ENDOKRIN (SPT STYROFOAM, PVC, FTALAT DAN POLIKARBONAT & BANYAK LAGI
😣 AIR MINUMAN BERKLORIN

and the list goes on… 😦

And here we are.. complaining WHY OUR CHILDREN ALWAYS SICK..WHY THEY ARE SO FRAGILE.. WHY THEY ARE EASILY INFECTED BY ALL TYPES OF DISEASE…???

I better stop here and give you and me some quite time to think about this..kita baca la dulu apa itu Thymus yer.. saya pun rasa macam lemah je bila tahu FAKTA YG MENYAKITKAN ini..😦

Thymus: The Gland that Protects You Long after It’s Gone..

[Written by Robert M. Sargis MD, PhD]

thymus

The thymus gland, located behind your sternum and between your lungs, is only active until puberty. After puberty, the thymus starts to slowly shrink and become replaced by fat.Thymosin is the hormone of the thymus, and it stimulates the development of disease-fighting T cells.

The thymus gland will not function throughout a full lifetime, but it has a big responsibility when it’s active—helping the body protect itself against autoimmunity, which occurs when the immune system turns against itself. Therefore, the thymus plays a vital role in the lymphatic system (your body’s defense network) and endocrine system.

Before birth and throughout childhood, the thymus is instrumental in the production and maturation of T-lymphocytes or T cells, a specific type of white blood cell that protects the body from certain threats, including viruses and infections. The thymus produces and secretes thymosin, a hormone necessary for T cell development and production.

The thymus is special in that, unlike most organs, it is at its largest in children. Once you reach puberty, the thymus starts to slowly shrink and become replaced by fat. By age 75, the thymus is little more than fatty tissue. Fortunately, the thymus produces all of your T cells by the time you reach puberty.

Anatomy of the Thymus

The thymus is located in the upper anterior (front) part of your chest directly behind your sternum and between your lungs. The pinkish-gray organ has two thymic lobes.

The thymus reaches its maximum weight (about 1 ounce) during puberty.

Thymosin: The Hormone of the Thymus

Thymosin stimulates the development of T cells. Throughout your childhood years, white blood cells called lymphocytes pass through the thymus, where they are transformed into T cells.

Once T cells have fully matured in the thymus, they migrate to the lymph nodes (groups of immune system cells) throughout the body, where they aid the immune system in fighting disease. However, some lymphocytes, regardless if they reside in the lymph nodes or thymus, can develop into cancers (known as Hodgkin disease and non-Hodgkin lymphomas).

Though the thymus gland is only active until puberty, its double-duty function as an endocrine and lymphatic gland plays a significant role in your long-term health.
