  1. Hydration_ need to drink water!


Dehydration decreases saliva antimicrobial proteins important for mucosal immunity. 

(Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Oct;37(5):850-9.)


       2. The Mucosal Immunity_ do not touch your face etc.!


The mucosal surfaces mostly in the body cavities and skin are thin and permeable barriers to the interior of the body for their physiological functions, but the permeability allows obvious vulnerability to infection. Majority of infectious agents invade the human body through these routes. Therefore, the mucosal immune system is important to protect our body from pathogens.
