Homeostasis

And the Digestive System

Fun Facts about Homeostasis and the Digestive System

Homeostasis is to maintain and restore certain steady states or conditions of the organism. For example the human body keeps the temperature at F 98.6.


The digestive system is responsible for the processing and uptake of nutrition. It also breaks down. Digestion begins in the mouth with the help of the teeth and then down the esophagus to the stomach. Then the nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine and the waste is removed in the large intestine.

The Foods We Eat

Personal taste, family preferences, cultural influences, emotional reasons, health concerns, societal pressures, convenience, and cost all come into play when we choose what to eat. Sometimes junk food can come in and be unhealthy to people. There are fats that clog up the arteries. As a result blood can't pass through and a heart attack occurs.
