What am I?

I am an organelle in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells containing degradative enzymes enclosed in a membrane.

My Function

I digest things. I might be used to digest food or break down the cell when it dies. I am like the garbage man I take out the unwanted waste in our bodies like dead cells.

Reason for importance

I take out all of the waste from your bodies and without me you not be able to digest food or release eaten food. Without me you would easily die because the waste inside of you would build up and accumulate.
