By cold the respiratory function is exalted, and the excretion of urea is diminished.
The secretion or excretion of glands may be augmented or diminished.
Renal disturbance is often the result of the excretion of microbic poisons.
Bromidrosis; the excretion of perspiration of a strong odor.
It is a living organism, ceaselessly busied, like any other organism, in the processes of assimilation and excretion.
There is less and less opportunity for nutrition, respiration, and excretion.
In the moment of excretion, the majority act as Eliminatives.
The means by which secretion and excretion are effected are, however, identical.
In living beings they are the products of excretion rather than substances essential to vegetable or animal life.
Their excretion seems to be in a certain sense a safety-valve function.
excretion ex·cre·tion (ĭk-skrē'shən)
The act or process of discharging waste matter from the blood, tissues, or organs.
The matter, such as urine, feces, or sweat, that is so excreted.
The elimination by an organism of waste products that result from metabolic processes. In plants, waste is minimal and is eliminated primarily by diffusion to the outside environment. Animals have specific organs of excretion. In vertebrates, the kidney filters blood, conserving water and producing urea and other waste products in the form of urine. The urine is then passed through the ureters to the bladder and discharged through the urethra. The skin and lungs, which eliminate carbon dioxide, are also excretory organs.
