7. What is the function of the circulatory system? ____________________________

_______________________________________________________________________

The average adult has about five liters of blood living inside of their body, coursing through their vessels,
delivering essential elements, and removing harmful wastes. Without blood, the human body would stop

Blood contains three different types of cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the body. White
blood cells are responsible for fighting disease and platelets help blood clot.
