    People with Leukemia means that they lack the suppressor T-cell in their blood? So their white blood cells multiply very quickly until excessive.

    The latter describes leukemia (as far as my knowledge of this disease goes), but I could not find evidence of the former statement.
    But my knowledge of immunology is sadly limited, so other members might be able to provide a more detailed answer.


    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    That's fine. Thank you
    I've just read about Lymphocytes again and found about Suppressor T-cell. It doesn't say that it has something to do with Leukemia anyway ,just my idea.
