Favorite Three Organs

Small Intestine, Liver, and Large Intestine

Small Intestine

The Small Intestine (or small bowel) is the part of the gastrointestinal tract following the stomach and followed by the large intestine. The small intestine does most of the absorbtion of vitamines and minerals for the body.

Liver

The Liver is a vital organ present in vertebrates and some other animals. It has a wide range of functions, including detoxification, protien synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. The LIver is necessary for survival; there is currently no way to compenstate for the absence of liver function in the long term, although new liver dialysis techniques can be used in the short term.

Large Intestine

The Large Intestine (or bowel, colon) is the last part of the digestion system in vertebrate animals. Its function is to absorb water from the remaining indigestible food matter, and then to pass useless waste materials from the body. The Large Intestine is about 4.9 feet.
