Epithelial Tissue

Epithelial tissue covers the whole body, aka skin. Epithelial tissue consists of closely packed cells and arranged into different layers. Epithelial tissue consists of both simple and stratified forms, branches including simple squamous, simple columner, psuedostratified columner, stratified squamous, stratified cubodial, transitional, and simple cubodial. Epithelial tissues exists in order to: protect, sense, secrete, absorb, excretion, diffusion, and cleaning.


Epithelial tissue is found in the lungs, kidneys, liver, thyroid glands, mammary glands, salivary glands, lining of the stomach, intestines, uterus, gallbladder, nasal cavity, the skin, tongue, bladder, and many other parts of the human body.

Due to the loation of the epithelial tissues, and the job it provides, I believe it has the best location. It surrounds the body which ultimately enables it to protect the body better.
