Digestion in the human bodyWatch this thread
This might sound a bit dim, but I'm quite confused about the order of which each organ acts. So I know each 'job' of the organs, and how liver for example produces bile to emulsify fat. But I'm confused..
So food starts in the mouth
then through the oesophagus
then the stomach
Then what? Does the bile go from the liver to the stomach, or does the food go to the small intestine and THEN the bile is secreted?
Then after the small intestine when all useful products are absorbed into the blood, the rest goes to the large intestine and then finally, they are egested?
I hope you understand my question and I've actually made some sense. Thanks :P

1) Mouth (describe teeth and talk about salivary amylase)
3) Stomach (talk about pepsin)
4) Small intestine (duodenum where bile acts on it (talk about lipase) then jejunum where absorption happens, then ilium)
5) colon (water drawn)
