Reference: Body Systems

made by Marisa

Circulatory System
The circulatory system carries oxygen (hemoglobin in red blood cells carries O2) and nutrients to the cells all over the body and carries carbon dioxide and waste away from the cells. 
Respiratory System
The respiratory system brings oxygen (O2) into the body and sends carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the body.
Digestive System
The digestive system breaks down food and adsorbs nutrients for the body. It is aided by bacteria that live in the intestines and help break down complex nutrients. 
Nervous System
The nervous system collects and stores information from inside and outside the body. It controls the body's actions and its responses to any changes. All five senses are part  of the nervous system.
Skeletal System
The skeletal system gives your body structure and protects your internal organs. It stores minerals and produces blood cells in the bone marrow. 
Muscular System
The muscular system is responsible for all of the body's movements, both voluntary (jumping, chewing, walking, etc.) and involuntary (breathing, stomach churning, etc.). 
Endocrine System
The endocrine system produces chemical messengers called hormones that help maintain homeostasis and control growth and development.
Integumentary System
The integumentary system is your skin. It serves as a protective barrier around your body preventing water loss and helping to control body temperature. 
Immune System
The immune system is made of antibodies and white blood cells that protect your body from infection. HIV attacks a special type of white blood cell known as the Helper T cell.
Reproductive System
The reproductive system produces the gamete cells required for sexual reproduction. The male cells are known as sperm and the female gamete cells are known as eggs.
Excretory System
The excretory system removes waste from the body and helps the body maintains homeostasis by preventing the buildup of excess fluid and solid material within the body. 

Even though I took HTML and Dreamweaver, this was so tedious!
Hope this helps!
