HUMAN DIGESTION 2 Human Digestion Do you ever wonder what happens to your food once it is in your mouth? Well I know that I have and soon you will know just what happens to the food that we eat. “For us to use the food that we eat the body has to break it down into smaller portions so it can be process or turn into excrete waste.”(www.enchantedlearning.com) It is very important that everything works in the digestive system, which is a basic functions, the path and disease of the system are vital to daily life. I’m going to take you on a journey and try to explain the digestive system on the way. There are a lot of functions of the digestive system, which is also called the gastrointestinal tract or the alimentary canal. The work begins when it enters the mouth; here is where the teeth, tongue, and salivary glands break down the food. They are the first ones to begin the digestive process which transform into a bolus. The food is broken down into different types of energy sources that parts of the body can use.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
