The Digestive System
How important is the Digestive System? What Would happen if we didnt have it? Would we be able to stay alive? Without our Digestive System,we wouldn't be able to move at all. To move you must have energy and to get energy you need to eat food. You wouldn't be able to stay alive without eating.
The Digestive System is a complicated system that works to convert your food into nutrients your body needs.
The Digestive System uses 8 organs including the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas and gallbladder.
The mouth is the first organ in the Digestive System. You put food into it and swallow it. The food then goes into the esophagus, a long tube that carries food and drink to the stomach. The Stomach is the main part of the Digestive System, as it holds the small and large intestine. The small intestine is where Digestion and Absorption takes place. The Large Intestne finishes Digestion. It takes about 16 hours to finish.
