Tonsils
Tonsils produce certain types of disease-fighting white blood cells. Therefore, the tonsils are believed to act as the immune system's first line of defense against bacteria and viruses that enter your mouth. This function may make them particularly vulnerable to infection and inflammation. Tonsils usually shrink as age increases. If they donot shrink it leads to obstructive sleep apnea and difficulty in swallowing.
