Lymphatic/Immune System- by Jordan Speights

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that protects your body from bacteria, sickness, germs etc. It also makes white blood cells


  • The tonsils produce antibodies to stop the spread of bacteria
  • Produces T-cells to fight foreign substances
  • The spleen gets rid of old cells, reserves blood for emergencies and recycles iron.
  • Lymph nodes create and release white blood cells into the body
  • adenoid is a clump of tissues that kill bacteria

It does not produce any hormones. Nor does it need any hormones to stay regulated it is just vessels running in the body

A lot of organs swell up and need to be removed

The system communicates by releasing germ killing bacteria into the body
