Question description

Digestion and Absorption

So far, we have spent quite a bit of time discussing what to eat, and how to eat it. However, it is equally important to understand how our body physiologically reacts to what we eat and how we eat it. After viewing The Digestive System video, use the outline below to discuss the purpose and function of the human digestive system:

  1. The Digestive Tract
  • Discuss the purpose and components of the digestive system.
The Mechanical Aspect of Digestion
  • Specify the key mechanical processes involved with the digestion of a food item of your choice.
The Chemical Aspect of Digestion
  • Differentiate the mechanical and chemical digestive processes and discuss the role of enzymes and other gastric fluids in digesting sugar, starch, fiber, fat, and protein.
A Letter From Your Digestive Tract
  • Review the letter on page 92 of your textbook. Discuss the correlation between food choices and digestive disorders and explain how to avoid such disorders.

This assignment must be a minimum of three pages in length (excluding title and references pages) in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Use subheadings to help organize your paper. Include a minimum of two scholarly sources, in addition to the course text, cited according to APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. At least one of your sources must be from the Ashford University Library.
