The template talks about the small and large intestine. Most digestion and absorption of food occurs in the small intestine. The small intestine is a narrow, twisting tube that occupies most of the lower abdomen between the stomach and the beginning of the large intestine.
It extends about 20 feet in length. The small intestine consists of three parts: the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum. The small intestine has two important functions. The digestive process is completed here by enzymes and other substances made by intestinal cells, the pancreas, and the liver. The small intestine absorbs the nutrients from the digestive process. Undigested material travels next to the large intestine. The large intestine forms an upside down U over the coiled small intestine. It begins at the lower right-hand side of the body and ends on the lower left-hand side. The large intestine is about 5-6 feet long. It has three parts: the cecum, the colon, and the rectum. The cecum is a pouch at the beginning of the large intestine. This area allows food to pass from the small intestine to the large intestine. The colon is where fluids and salts are absorbed and extends from the cecum to the rectum. The last part of the large intestine is the rectum, which is where feces is stored before leaving the body through the anus.
