What Is Fluid Connective Tissue? Explain.

Blood and lymph are the fluid connective tissues. Blood is made up of red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs) and platelets which are present in the plasma.

RBCs contain haemoglobin and the function of RBCs is to transport oxygen.

WBCs form a defense system to protect against foreign antigens.

Platelets function is blood clotting. Plasma contains proteins, water, hormones, and salts which are transported to different body parts. All components of blood except RBCs form lymph.

Lymph transports absorbed fat as it cannot enter the bloodstream directly. The WBCs in lymph help in fighting infection and get rid of toxins and waste materials.
