Toxic Material Cycle
Liver- transforms toxins into harmless agents so that our body can eliminate them.
Kidneys- filter out the toxins from our blood into urine
Intestines- propels toxins from food into the bowel for excretion.
Lungs- expel gases filtered out toxins when we breathe out
Skin- eliminates toxins by sweating and by shedding dead skin
Lymphatic system- carries waste too large to enter the bloodstream to lymph nodes for processing before these large toxins are given to the liver for detoxification.
