The lymphatic system is critical to the normal operation of the immune response and the removal of waste material from the body in the form of fluids and lipids. Lymph itself transports oxygen, carbohydrates, hormones, and other wastes from cells to the bloodstream. It kills bacteria in the lymph nodes and prevents illnesses from spreading. It absorbs and transports fat from the gut, as well as fat-soluble vitamins and minerals.
