This MCAT podcast covers the lymphatic system. Sam and Alex first talk about the anatomy of the lymphatic system and then get into its three main functions:
- Returning materials and fluid to the blood
- Supporting the immune system
- Absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients
Lastly, Alex talks about some exciting research that is going on to investigate the connection between the brain and the lymphatic system.
