Lymphatic System
 
The lymphatic system is an extensive drainage network that helps keep bodily fluid levels in balance and defends the body against infections. It is made up of a network of lymphatic vessels that carry lymph (a clear, watery fluid containing protein molecules, salts, glucose, and other substances) throughout the body.
