The Digestive System: How it Works
The first intestine is the small intestine( 6 meters long). The small intestine is where the food mixes with enzymes that comes through small tubes that are leading from the liver and pancreas to the stomach. Next comes the large intestines(1.5 meters long). Absorbs vitamin and water into the blood stream . The last part of the digestive system is the rectum and anus. that is where the waste leaves the body.
The digestive system may sound gross but it is one of the most important systems in the body. Without it our blood wouldn't be healthy and we wouldn't be as strong as we are. Next time you're playing a sport or playing with a friend ,think about how your body converted food into energy.
