THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

HELLO MY NAME IS LYDIA. I’M GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT TH E DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO NAME SOME PARTS OF THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: THERE IS THE MOUTH, ESOPHAGUS, STOMACH, LIVER AND SMALL AND LARGE INTESINE. LETS START!!!! THE MOUTH IS WHERE THE FOOD IS CHEWED BY THE TEETH . THE CHEWED FOOD PASSES AS A BOLUS DOWN THE ESOPHAGUS FROM THE MOUTH TO THE STOMACH, WHERE IT IS TURNED INTO A SUBSTANCE CALLED CHIME. AS THE ACID LEVELS RISE THE PYLORIC SPHINCTER, FROM THE STOMACH, SLOWLY REALEASES CHIME INTO THE SMALL INTESTINE. THE SMALL INTESTINE IS SURPRISINGLY LONG, ABOUT 19 ½ FEET AND CURLS UP IN THE CENTRAL ABDOMEN, BELOW THE LIVER AND STOMACH. WHILE THE FOOD IS IN THE INTESTINES THE BLOOD ABSORBS NUTRIENTS FROM THE DIGESTED FOOD, AND THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. THE FIRST 9 ¾ INCHES IS CALLED THE DUODENUM. THE LAST PART OFTHE SMALL INTESTINE, THE ILEUM, JOINS THE LARGE INTESTINE. THE LARGE INTESTINE IS WHERE THE WASTE FOOD IS STORED, AND IS EMPTIED BY DEFECATION. THE LIVER, PACREAS AND SPLEEN ARE UNDER THE DIAPH RAGM.THE LIVER IS THE LARGEST INTERNAL ORGAN, WEIGHING 3 POUNDS. ARE THERE ANY QUESTONS ,COMMENTS OR ADDINGS? PLEASE ASK OR SAY THEM, I’D LIKE TO HEAR OR ANSWER THEM.
