Find out the function of blood in the body, what it brings to every cell, what it’s made of, and how many pints of blood exist in the average person. Discover the responsibilities of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, and find out how many are of each found in just one drop of blood! You’ll also see blood’s special protein, hemoglobin, in action, and learn how blood clots keep you from bleeding to death from a measly paper cut. Blood really saves the day, every day!
