    Your bone marrow produces up to 500 billion red blood cells per day that replenish the cells that die off.  Your bone marrow also produces lymphocytes, which is a type of white blood cell.  

    Red blood cells carry oxygen to all of the parts of your body.  Every one of your cells needs oxygen to function properly.  Without adequate oxygen, the cells in your body will cease to function properly, and they may die.  White blood cells are a vital part of a human’s immune system.  White blood cells fight infection and disease by engulfing foreign bodies and particles and destroying them before they cause your body harm.
