4. 11 body fluids we couldn’t live without. Saliva, Urine, sweat, Bile, Blood, menstrual Fluid, Mucus, Pus, semen, tears, Vomitus.

a. Bile – bile salts, which function like soap to break down dietary fats, enabling them and fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D and E to be absorbed. They also help to prevent the cholesterol-containing bile in the gallbladder from forming gallstones.
b. Blood – contains cell fragments called platelets and clotting factors that help to seal leaks that may develop in blood vessels.
c. Menstrual fluid – menstrual fluid is one of the body fluids with the strongest psychological and cultural overtones
d. Mucus – keeps the lining of the respiratory system from drying out and also filters out dust and infectious agents in the air we breathe.
e. Pus – Pus under the skin is often found in a pimple, but deeper in the body a larger collection is known as an abscess. Pimples and abscesses represent the body’s attempt to contain the spread of an infection
f. Semen – Contains fructose, a sugar that nourishes the sperm, as well as alkaline secretions that help to neutralize the normally acidic environment of the vagina.
g. Saliva – contains antibacterial enzymes and antibodies, as well as mucus itself. Saliva helps to moisten food, which is important to lubricate chewing and swallowing. It also enhances taste, because if the chemicals in food were not in a liquid medium, they could not be detected by taste receptors.
h.Sweat – Most important role is thermoregulation, helping to cool the body when it begins to overheat.
I.Tears – serve three functions: to lubricate the eye, to remove irritants such as smoke (and a sulfuric acid-producing chemical from cut onions) and in association with emotional states such as sorrow and joy.
J. Urine – Average adult produces about 1.5 liters of urine per day. Produced by the kidneys and stored by the bladder, urine contains many substances that must be removed from the body to maintain a state of health. These include the breakdown products of protein metabolism, which would become toxic if they were allowed to accumulate in the blood. Urine also serves as the principal means for removing excess salt and water from the body.
K. Vomitus – vomiting purges the body of toxins
