Which lymphatic duct receives the majority of lymph drainage from the body?

Answer

The Right Lymphatic duct receives lymph from the right half of the head, neck, thorax, right upper limb, right lung, right side of the heart, and right surface of the liver.  The Right Lymphatic duct feeds it all into the internal jugular vein.  The Thoracic duct drains 75% of the body.  Lymph from the lower limbs, pelvic cavity, abdominal cavity, the left side of the thorax, the left side of the head, left neck, and left upper limb drain into the Thoracic duct and dumps it into the subclavian vein.
