The urinary system includes two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, two sphincter muscles, and the urethra. the liver & the lungs The liver is a large, important organ. It functions in the excretory system by breaking down some proteins & other nitrogenous compounds in a process called deamination and forms the nitrogenous waste called urea,which is expelled in urination. the skin As you already know, sweat comes out of pores in your skin.
