A harmone called erythropoietin and low oxygen levels regulate the production of RBCs (Red Blood Cells). RBCs are by far the most abundant cells in the blood. RBCs give blood its characteristic red color. In men, there are an average 5,200,000 RBCs per cubic millimeter (microliter) and in women there are average of 4,600,000 RBCs per cubic millimeter. RBCs account for approximately 40 to 45 percent of the blood. The primary function of the RBC is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body. RBCs contain a protein called hemoglobin that actually carries the oxygen. Plasma is the liquid portion of the blood. RBCs float in the plasma.
Besides carrying oxygen to the cells in the body, the RBCs help to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the body. Carbon dioxide is formed in the cells as a byproduct of many chemical reactions.
More and more awareness should be created amongst the large section of the population for giving importance to daily intake of liquid diet which is good for human biological systems because it could help in a big way to keep the blood stream flowing in the human body appropriately.
