What is the difference between blood and lymph?

Asked by  | 22nd Aug, 2010, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

1. The blood throughout our body is pumped by the heart. However, the lymphatic system does not have any such system.
2. Blood flows through our veins and carries oxygen to all parts of the body. The lymphatic system in fact removes the waste and other products that are released in the tissues.
3. Blood consists of liquid plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. The filtered lymph that is channeled into the cardiovascular system is more like a milky white or clear liquid.
