The function of blood cells is to attack the viruses and bacteria that may exist, so the attacker can be eradicated.

Implications: Therefore, Scraping also triggers cardiovascular reactions. Body temperature rises slightly, about 0.5 to 2 degrees Celsius. Increasing the temperature causes a faster chemical reaction that occurs in cardiovascular. This research was expected to open the public’s knowledge of doubts against scraping (kerokan)
