Jupiter's gravitational pull is so massive that it sucks in a bunch of these things so that they don't get a chance to hit Earth. Think of it as a vacuum cleaner that vacuums up harmful little lego pieces so you don't have to step on them. One such instance of Jupiter going to bat for Earth happened last year and was caught on video.
