where does digestion occur



  1. 0 Votes

    Digestion happens throughout your digestive tract.  It begins when you chew your food and salivate during eating.  Then in your stomach the acidic envrionment combined with enzymes will further break down your food.  Enzymes will continue to work through your small intestine (the first part) and nutrients will continue to be absorbed during this process until what you are left with is waste.  For more detailed information see this website http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/yrdd/
