Caption: Digestive system. Artwork showing the human digestive system. At top is part of the oesophagus, a muscular tube which passes food from the mouth to the stomach. The stomach is bean- shaped and here food is stored and digested by acidic gastric juices. The triangular-shaped organ is the liver. Food from the stomach enters the C- shaped duodenum into which bile and pancreatic juices are secreted. At lower centre is the long and coiled small intestine where digested food is absorbed into the blood. Food residue then passes into the large intestine, a wide circular tract or colon (blue) where excess water is absorbed. Faeces are stored in the rectum (at lower frame).
