Blood is a body fluid that circulates through the body, delivering nutrients and oxygen to the body's cells and carrying away waste products. Blood is pumped by the heart through arteries to all the areas of the body. At the end of the arteries, the blood enters capillaries - thin blood vessels that allow sufficient exchange of nutrients, oxygen, and waste products between the blood and the cells. Blood then returns to the heart through a third type of blood vessel - veins.
