General Information[edit]

The human body is approximately divided into different categories of systems:

  1. Nervous System
  2. Circulatory System
  3. Respiratory System
  4. Muscular System
  5. Endocrine System
  6. Digestive System
  7. Integumentary System

Other systems can include, lymphatic, immune, excretory, skeletal, or reproductive systems. The lymphatic system is a system that is designed to move fluids and nutrients through the body. Also, it is used to generate disease fighting antibodies. The immune system is the system that protects our bodies from foreign invaders. Helps prevent infection and diseases by employing white blood cells and antibodies. The excretory system is for excretion of urine and waste, while the skeletal describes how bones, tendons and ligaments all interact. Finally, the reproductive system is allow for the reproduction of offspring through gametes like eggs and sperm. [1]
