Public Service Announcement Pt. 1 (Health)

“A gland is a group of cells that produces and secretes” 

Growth hormone, which stimulates the growth of bone and other body tissues and plays a role in the body’s handling of nutrients and minerals 

Prolactin, which activates milk production in women who are breastfeeding 

Thyrotropin, which stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones 

Corticotropin, which stimulates the adrenal gland to produce certain hormones (Endocrine system, 1995-2009).

Glands remove materials from blood, our adrenal glands are located on the kidney but kidneys aren’t part of the endocrine system. Without these hormones the body couldn’t do a series of things.
