Health / Acupuncture / Blood: The familiar red fluid in the body that contains white and red blood cells, platelets, proteins, and other elements.

Arterial blood is the means by which oxygen and nutrients are transported to tissues while venous blood is the means by which carbon dioxide and metabolic by-products are transported to the lungs and kidneys, respectively, for removal from the body.
