What Does the Excretory System Do?

What Is The Excretory System?

The excretory system is an essential part of the human body. In general, this is a passive biological system that plays an important role in eliminating unnecessary and excess substances to prevent damage and maintain chemical homeostasis. Only the body parts and organs particularly used for excreting wastes belong to the excretory system. Narrowly speaking, this term only refers to the urinary system. Nevertheless, this process also involves many other functions and parts. [1]
