Transcript of The Stomach/Digestive system

My Stomach/Digestive System Room By:A'Drell Stallings By the time your food reaches the large intestine all that is left is water and waste products, such as fruit and vegetable fiber.he first stop is the cecum, a pouch at the beginning of the large intestine. The appendix, a finger-like pouch, hangs at the end of the cecum.Once through the cecum, food residue passes through the colon, where nearly all of the water is absorbed, leaving a usually soft but formed substance called stool(Poop). The small intestine is where the major breakdown of foods takes place.Also small intestine is located to the lower end of the stomach which is also connected to the large intestine. It's also where the majority of nutrients from food are absorbed into the body. Not only that, its where most of the nutrients are absorbed from the food. The Muscule Layers The muscle layers are muscle that mixes the food and moves it towards the intestines.When the food is almost liquid it passes into the small intestines. By time the food reaches the small intestine/stomach, the slimy mucus in the stomach which keeps it moist will help other pasts of the stomach called the glands. Glands help make juices in the stomach so it can be easier to digest. Food doesn't just fall down a pipe into your stomach--- it is pushed down by the esophagus the tube that connects your throat to your stomach.When you swallow, muscles in the wall of your esophagus create synchronized waves, one behind the other The muscles of the esophagus below the bolus relax, while the muscles above it contract. This allows the bolus to be squeezed down the esophagus without resistance. Stomach THe Large intestine The Small Intestine Esophagus The stomach is a organ or body part that holds and breaks down food.A person stomach has four parts: Esophagus,Stomach,Small intestines,Muscle layers.We already know about the stomach so lets talk about the Esophagus. 1.
