Caption: Digestive system. Illustration showing the human digestive system on a silhouette of a human figure. Food enters the stomach (red, centre right) through the oesophagus. The stomach stores and churns up food ready for digestion in the small intestine (blue). As food passes into the small intestine, bile from the liver (purple, centre), which is stored and concentrated in the gall bladder (pear-shaped, behind liver, light green), is released to aid the breakdown of fats. After digestion, food residues pass into the large intestine or colon (orange), a wide tract in which excess water is absorbed. Faeces are finally expelled through the anus (lower centre).
