Cutting Dead Cells

The body's integumentary system supports the excretory system in the removal of waste. Skin, hair,
fingernails and toenails make up the system by which surface level wastes are removed.

The skin protects the body and also provides for the removal of dead cells and sweat, which contains
waste products. Hair, fingernails and toenails are actually accumulations of dead epidermal cells. As
more cells die and need to be removed, the hair and nails grow.
