Blood is a fluid that flows throughout your entire body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to all of your cells and taking away the waste products that they produce. Within the blood are several different kinds of cells, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and special cell fragments called platelets. Blood is an important part of the cardiovascular system, and when there are problems (such as hemophilia) within this system, it can affect your health.
