Transcript of Digestive System Tour

Digestive System You are now entering the tour of Jovan
Choongh's body via "The Speed Bullet Coaster"
You have all paid a non-refundable price of
$1,000,000 and the tour is continous and doesnt stop for anything issue. Enjoy! We are now departing, it will be a bumpy ride. We are just enterting the mouth, where the digestion starts. Watch out, this is the 1st area of danger. Keep your hands in the cart, otherwise Jovans sharp teeth will slice your arms. As your can see the food is getting broken down by the teeth, to swallow. The tongue is swirling and tasting the food. Woah! WATCH OUT, the salivary ducts are shooting up the saliva to the mouth to break down the carbohydrates. Close your windows so you dont get wet. Folks, this is the 1st very unique and interesting area.Look closely and you will see all the the small pieces of food turning into a ball known as the bolus people! This will go through the pharynx. The pharynx is the connection tube from your mouth to the esophagus. The pharynx contains the epiglotis, a miniture flap of skin that covers the airway tube , so you do not get food or liquid into your lungs. The bolus will continue to steadly move down the phaynx until it reaches the esophagus. The esophagus is a very muscular tube that transports food into your stomach Hold on to your seats Y'ALL, we are going down the esophagus ,following the bolus. we are in the stomach.As you can see this a large area, however this is the 2nd area of danger. This is also the 2nd area of interest because our stomach is one of the most important organs in the digestive system.The hydrochloric acid is very corrosive do not open your windows. The mucus is protecting the stomach from the acid. All the liquid you se is the gastric juices that contain pepsin to help break down the protein. You can see the bolus were here it would be getting broken down by the stomach and into a liquid called chyme. You people can see as we are moving with the chyme, eating the stomach and enterting the duodenum, which is literally the first foot of the small intestine. the duodenum is numerous tubes connecting to the liver, pancreas, and gall bladder. You folks can see that this tube connects to the liver. The liver creates a substance called Bile stored by the gall bladder.Bile helps break down globs of fat like how sanitzer breaks up bacteria. This next tube you can see is connected to the pancreas. This is also the 3rd area of interest because of the astonishing job of the pancreas. The pancreas creates digestive enzymes that pass through the small intestine breaking down carbs, fat, and protein in the chyme. Pancreas also creates the enzyme Insulin, which breaks down sugar. As we follow the remaining nurtrients into the last 500cm of the small intestine, the food is absorbed in to the body for nutrients. As you can see folks its a very interesting process. The folded villi in the small intestine give more space for food to absorb. This wide tube we are in is the large intestine. This is very similar to the small intestine becuase they both move and absorb food. However the large intestine absorbs what the small intestine cannot such as water and minerals. Tourists, anything you see now are solid undigested or unabosrbed materials called feces. These feces remain in the rectum and are removed by the anus, which is where our speed bullet will exit from too.However be careful this is the 3rd area of danger, if you open your window coming out you may seriously injure
or kill yourself
