And since there are so many different parts with different jobs to do, tl >e blood must be made up of many things. The liquid part of the blood, called "plasma," makes up a little more than half of the blood. In this plasma are many sub s ances, each needed for a different purpose. Albumin keeps the blood from flowing through t h e walls of blood vessels, globu lins help fight against disease, sugars give the body energy, fats are for burning or storage, and so on. The plasma also carries the waste products from the cells, and the special secretions of the many glands in the body. So the plasma is like a transportation sys tern for the entire body. When we think of blood being "formed," we mean the red cells, or red blood corpuscles, which are in the blood and give it its color. They are tiny, round, flat disks. About 35,000,000,000,000 red cells are moving around in the body at any one time. They always stay in the blood vessels unless there is a break in the vessel. When there is — we say a person is bleeding. These red blood cells are formed in the marrow of the bones throughout the body. Most of them are formed in the bones of the hip, the ribs, and (he breastbone. A:; the young red cell grows and takes on adult form in the marrow, it loses its nucleus and builds up more and more "hemoglobin," Hemoglobin is what makes t h e blood red. It is the red pigment or color in the red blood cell, and it contains iron combined with protein. The body has a great need for hemoglobin because it combines easily with gases such as oxygen and carbon dioxide. Red cells live only about four months and then are broken up. New red cells are always being formed to replace the cells that are worn out and destroyed. If a person doesn't have enough red cells in the blood, we say he has "anemia." This may happen because of some condition in t h e bone marrow, or lack of iron or other substance. FUN TIME Tho Kiddle Dux 1. Why should fish be well educated? 2.
