Excretory System?

The excretory system is the system of an organism's body that performs the function of excretion, the bodily process of discharging wastes.  The Excretory System is responsible for the elimination of wastes produced by homeostasis. The Excretory System balances the water and salt inside of our bodies.  Our kidneys are apart of the Excretory System.  Other body parts such as ureters, bladder, and urethra.  Once the fluid or waste pasts through your urethra its all gone.  This system's kidneys pull harmful molecules out of our bloodstream and leave the good ones inside of us.  If the kidney's fails to work in the Excretory System, then the blood pressure can increase to a dangerous amount of levels.  Then the urea would slowly poison the cells in our body.  This is why the Excretory System is one of the most important systems in our body's. In the Excretory System's diseases are:
