Eosinophils are typically rare in our blood and tissues, accounting for about 3% of our white blood cells. Their biological roles are poorly understood, but recent studies suggest that eosinophils are involved in regulating our fat metabolism, repairing certain tissues, and helping us fight different infections and cancers.
