Guts: Our Digestive System by Seymour SimonWhy is it important tochew your food?
Can you guess how long it takes for food to travel through your body?
Could you possibly have twenty feet of small intestines?
Where does that bad-smelling gas come from?
Your digestive system is out of sight and out of mind -- until things dont go right. Then you may wonder how these important organs work!
Youll find the answers in Seymour Simons smooth, well-organized, and fascinating introduction to the digestive system. He explains how it works twenty-four hours a day, turning pizza, sandwiches, milk, and other food into energy and nutrients and waste. Striking photographs on every spread show how major organs including the stomach and intestines move food through your body, and how, eventually, waste is eliminated.
Guts takes the mystery out of something that happens to everyone, every day, while at the same time sharing a sense of wonder about the human body.
My Journey Through the Digestive System
Food is our fuel, and its nutrients give our bodies' cells the energy and substances they need to work. But before food can do that, it must be digested into small pieces the body can absorb and use. The first step in the digestive process happens before we even taste food. Just by smelling that homemade apple pie or thinking about how delicious that ripe tomato is going to be, you start salivating — and the digestive process begins in preparation for that first bite. Along the way, food is broken down into tiny molecules so that the body can absorb nutrients it needs:. The digestive system is made up of the alimentary canal also called the digestive tract and other organs, such as the liver and pancreas.

A look at the time it takes for food to pass through the gut from mouth to anus. In a healthy adult, transit time is about 24—72 hours. Read the article The human digestive system for further information. Digestive activity begins with the sights, sounds and smells of food. Just looking at or smelling appetising food can result in the brain sending signals to the salivary glands to make the mouth water and to the stomach to secrete gastric juice.
