The tonsils are part of the body's immune system. Because of their location at the throat and palate, they can stop germs entering the body through the mouth or the nose. The tonsils also contain a lot of white blood cells, which are responsible for killing germs.

The tonsils are important because they kill any bacteria that enters the mouth. They also produce t-cells that also kill and eliminate and bacteria. But the T-cells go every where in the mouth not just the mouth.
