If bile duct is
completely blocked then the bile juice and bile salt will not be secreted and
the digestion of fats will not be done. The food coming from the stomach is
acidic and has to be made alkaline for the pancreatic enzymes to act. Bile
juice from liver accomplishes this in addition to acting on fats. Fats are
present in the intestine in the form of large globule which makes it difficult
for enzymes to act on them. Bile salts break them down into smaller globules
increasing the efficiency of enzyme action. All this cannot take place if the
bile duct is blocked.
