You'll like this .
Il add a bonus after this.
There's was a 49 year survey in the use called high wbc kills it s findings were that the people with blood counts wbc of 3.4 to 5.8 lived a quarter longer than those with counts above 8.8 to 13.
It also states as you did that a low normal count 3.5 was fine and indicates that the immune system isn't struggling .
