Diet and digestion

diet-digestion 422

Human beings need to eat a balanced diet to stay healthy. The food we eat has to be broken down before it can be used by the cells of the body. This is the job of the digestive system.

The digestive system is made up of many different organs working together. It takes in food, breaks it down both physically and chemically, moves the digested food into the blood stream and removes the undigested waste.
