Spleen Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia


The spleen is an organ in vertebrates. In people, it is on the left side of the body, under the heart. The spleen helps fight infections and keep the blood cells healthy.

The spleen cleans out old blood cells from the blood and recycles them. It helps save the iron and the amino acids from the old blood cells. The spleen also holds a supply of extra blood, in case the body needs some quickly. The spleen works together with the circulatory system (the system which brings blood to the body).
