INTRODUCTION No man can be wise on an empty stomach ; No man can worship God or love his neighbor on an empty stomach –George Eliot and Winston Churchill The digestive system is like the energy machine. It receives all the food which is the primary source of energy in our body. But as the famous saying goes “we are what we eat”, when a stomach is empty a person can’t think well for the reason that the digestive system is the one delivering the nutrients in the brain. A person who has an empty stomach can’t also perform different physical activities due to lack of energy. Indeed the digestive system is a critical part of a man’s daily life. As based on Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, man must prioritize his physiologic needs because these predispose the fulfillment of higher needs. So abusing the digestive system like excessive drinking alcohol and eating with dirty hands would only mean trouble just like Acute Gastroenteritis.
