Lymphatic system

A system that compliments the vascular [arteries, veins and capillaries]. It carries clear fluid and small white cells (lympho-cytes).
FUNCTIONS of Lymphocytes:
1- Defence and immunity against bacteria and the like; 2- Helps the body in absorbing fats from the bowels. 3- All our cells bathe in fluid (mainly plasma or lymph) with which they exchange ions. Body cells take food ions and get rid of (excrete) the unwanted ions
