Digestive System

Chemical Digestion is carried out by the digestive enzymes
Mechanical Digestion where food is crushed,broken, or cut into smaller pieces(Mouth)
Saliva breaks down starch
Stomach acid (HCL) breaks down proteins
Bile breaks down fat
Gastric juice + food = chyme(VOMIT)
Mouth begins to break down food into smaller pieces through mechanical digestion; saliva in the mouth starts the process of chemical digestion
Esophagus the transport tube that carries chewed food to the stomach
Stomach continues the process of mechanical digestion of food
Small intestines the organ where most of the chemical digestion of food takes place; nutrients from food are also absorbed through the small intestines
Large intestines the organ where water is absorbed from the food and taken into the bloodstream; prepares the remaining food material for elimination from the body
Rectum and anus the rectum is a short tube that stores solid waste until it is eliminated from the body through anus
