Statement 1: Bile pigment is formed in the liver by the breakdown of haemoglobin in dead RBCs.
Statement 2: Vitamins are not excreted along with urine.
Bile pigments are formed in the liver by the breakdown of haemoglobin in dead RBCs. The liver is well known to metabolize many compounds and toxins, thereby eliminating them from the body. A substantial number of these compounds are reabsorbed in the small intestine and ultimately eliminated by the kidney. Our body needs salt and other substances only in certain amounts. Excess salt and water-soluble vitamins are excreted along with urine. Hence, statement 1 is true and statement 2 is false.
