Lymphatic system
Diseases of the lymphatic system include lymphedema, lymphoma, lymphadenopathy, lymphadenitis, filariasis, splenomegaly, and tonsillitis. It is pushed out through the capillary wall by pressure exerted by the heart or by osmotic pressure at the cellular level. When water stagnates, it gets impure. The efferent lymph vessel directly emerges from the lymph node at the hilum. Although lymphocytes are distributed throughout the body, it is within the lymphatic system that they are most likely to encounter foreign microorganisms. The result would be the number of ounces of water you need daily. Mature B- and T-Lymphocytes circulating in blood, protects the body against any infectious agent that enters the blood.
