The Blood Vessels

The Blood Vessels

What are blood vessels?
-  blood vessels transport blood throughout the body. Humans have three types of blood vessels; artery, veins and capillaries.

Arteries are blood vessels that takes oxygenated blood away from the heart. It delivers oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. It appears red when viewed through the skin depends on your skin colour. Image result for arteries

Veins are blood vessels that takes de-oxygenated blood back to the heart that received fresh oxygen. It is less more muscular than arteries and has thinner walls. It appears blue when they are close to the skin because of the diversion of light through the skin.
