Caption: Pharynx. Artwork of a sagittal section of a human head, showing the mouth, nose and throat (pharynx). The pharynx is lined with mucous membranes, and is used for both air and food intake. The pharynx leads to the oesophagus (pink, lower left, for food) and the larynx (voice box) and trachea (red, lower centre, for air). The epiglottis (white, lower centre) prevents food being taken to the lungs, as it closes off the trachea during the swallowing action.
