The cardiovascular system includes the heart, blood vessels, and blood. The function of the heart is to pump blood around the body in order to distribute nutrients (such as oxygen and glucose) to cells as well as remove the waste (such as carbon dioxide) that they generate. Heart disease, which is a disease of the blood vessels of the heart, is the number one cause of death in the United States.
