Expert Answer:

The lymphatic system is the other transport system of human body. It is a complex network of lymphoid organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, lymph capillaries and lymph vessels that produce and transport lymph fluid from tissues to the circulatory system.

Lymph carries digested and absorbed fat from intestine and drains excess fluid from extracellular space back into blood.

Lymph supplies mature lymphocytes to the blood.

Lymph acts to remove bacteria and other particles.
