  • Rushwr
Lymph is a clear to yellowish watery fluid that is found throughout the body. It circulates through body tissues picking up fats, bacteria, and other unwanted materials, and filtering them out through the lymphatic system. It is sometimes possible to see this fluid; cuts sometimes weep it rather than blood,

I guess now u have a slight idea about lymph !

  • insa
yeah! and what is lymphatic system?
Rushwr
  • Rushwr
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The lymphatic system primarily consists of lymphatic vessels, which are similar to the circulatory system's veins and capillaries. The vessels are connected to lymph nodes, where the lymph is filtered. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system.

Lymph nodes are soft, small, round- or bean-shaped structures. They usually cannot be seen or easily felt. They are located in clusters in various parts of the body, such as the: Neck Armpit Groin Inside the center of the chest and abdomen

Lymph nodes make immune cells that help the body fight infection. They also filter the lymph fluid and remove foreign material such as bacteria and cancer cells. When bacteria are recognized in the lymph fluid, the lymph nodes make more infection-fighting white blood cells, which cause the nodes to swell. The swollen nodes are sometimes felt in the neck, under the arms, and groin. The lymph system includes the: Tonsils Adenoids Spleen Thymus

what later happens with all the toxins and other unwanted material?
insa

are lymph nodes are the ones which produce white blood cells?
Rushwr
  • Rushwr
Lymph travels in lymphatic vessels upward through the body. During this journey it passes through lymph nodes that are located along the lymphatic vessels. Lymph is not discharged from the body. After it has been filtered to removed pathogens and debris, it returns to the bloodstream as plasma. Blood is filtered in the kidneys. The whole process is pretty complex and amazingly effective.

but after the blood is filtered, the waste leaves the body as an excretory product?
