Pathology of the Digestive System

Digestion food is broken down mechanically and chemically. Then travels through the gastrointestinal tract.
Absorption 1-digested food passes into bloodstream thru walls of small intestines. 2-Nutrients travel to all cells of the body. 3-Cells burn nutrients to release energy stored in food.
Elimination 1-Body eliminates solid waste materials that cannot be absorbed into bloodstream. 2-the large intestine concentrates feces. 3-the waste passes out of the body thru the anus.
