Pumping blood

All day and all night your heart pumps blood around your body. Blood takes oxygen to your cells. There are three kinds of blood cells – red cells, white cells and platelets. Blood travels through different sized tubes (vessels), called arteries, veins and capillaries.

In one day, your blood travels an unbelievable 19.000 km.
