Job of the Circulatory System
The job of the circulatory (Cirk-ulat-ory) system is to transport oxygen and food through your body and it also takes away waste. The parts of
the circulatory system are the heart, the blood, and the vessels. The heart pumps blood through your body. The blood transports oxygen through your body. The vessels function like roads.
What it Does to your Liver
The liver cleans the blood. It absorbs food and oxygen. The problem with hepatitis is that it affects the liver. It stops the liver from working well. Hepatitis makes the liver dirty and it stops absorbing the food.
