isn't the second part just answering the first part?
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;

Blood is pumped throughout the body by the heart, but the lymph is moved along through the normal function of the body.
2. Blood transports oxygen throughout the body. Lymph removes waste from the system.
3. Blood flows through the body in a circular motion. The movement of lymph is in a single direction.
4. Blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Lymph is a whitish and clear liquid.
5. You can see blood if there is damage to the vessels. Lymph cannot be seen with the naked eyes.
6. The kidneys purify the blood. However, lymph is purified in the nodes itself.
