What are antitoxins?
Antitoxins work to block toxins. If you have been poisoned you will likely be given an antitoxin so that the poison will not harm you.
Well phagocytes have the job of engulfing the bacteria or virus once the lymphocytes have produced the right antibody that matches the antigen on the bacteria/virus. There are 2 types of white blood cells, phagocytes and lymphocytes. Antitoxins are used to protect you from poisoned food. This poison,caused by the bacteria, are called toxins.Not rocket science, because I, myself am only 11.
the three types of white blood cells are lymphocytes which produces a chemical called antibodies, to destroy the bacteria. The second type is antitoxins and they neutralise the poisons that the bacteria are making. Another type is phagocytes which engulf (eat) the bacteria into the cytoplasm and kill them
