This illustrated webcast introduces the microscopic arsenal of weapons and warriors that play a role in the battle for your health.

TED education has been putting out some good videos which is a wonderful thing to see. It is wonderful to let people everywhere (kids and adults) that are interested in learning (and that have internet access) can learn about the world around us. Traditional educational institutions have not done much with this opportunity to broaden their impact.

The video looks at the cells reaction to a virus infiltrating the cell.

    I just found this blog but I absolutely LOVE blogs, videos, Youtube channels, which repackage science into something FUN and enjoyable.

    It is in everyone’s best interest to educate the masses even after they are past college age. And this is the way to go.
