D.S. Vocab

Digestive system

Mouth The mouth is where the digestive tract begins. Enzymes released into the mouth start the process of the digestion.
Pharnyx Because both food and air move through it, the pharnyx is part of both the respitory and the digestive system.
Epiglottis The epiglottis is the small peice of tissue that covers the opening to the larnyx to the trachea to keep food and liquid out of the lungs when you swallow.
Esophagus The esophagus is a small muscular tube that moves food from the pharnyx to the stomach.
Liver The liver is the body's internal organ. The liver peforms many tasks, including storing energy and helping the body get rid of toxins. (poisons)
Gallbladder The gallbladder is a small pouch that stores bile. The gallbladder releases bile into the duodenum to help digest fats in the food you eat.
Stomach The stomach has a lining thats tough enough to hold up acidic enviroment needed to break down food.
Small Intestine The small intestine is called small because of its width not its length. It's actually much longer than the large intestine. The small and the large intestines form one continuous tube.
