    Yup – each drop of blood moves to your finger – unloads some grub for the cells there – and a box of oxygen – and takes a box of carbon dioxide and other poisons and moves back to to the heart! Dumps the poisons and CO2 off at the lungs – and then takes on fresh boxes of oxygen (so dont smoke cigarettes and screw all that up!)!And it does all that because its magic!
