    White blood cells (or leukocytes) are cells of the immune system that defend your body from infectious disease and foreign materials. When they detect a germ or something that does not belong in the bloodstream they can attack it in a variety of ways. They may produce protective antibodies to overwhelm the germ. They may also surround it and destroy the bacteria. White blood cells make up approximately 1% of the blood of a healthy adult. However, when a person gets sick, the number of white blood cells will significantly increase.
