Could you please tell me the mechanism by which lymphatic fluid is pumped 
around the body. Does the cysterna chylae act like the heart of the lymphatic 
system, being pumped by the aorta? or is osmosis solely responsible for the 
flow of lymphatics in the body?

Thankyou for your help in this matter.
