Ever wonder how food like pizza or spaghetti moves through our body? We typically eat three meals a day . . . that adds up to several hundred pounds of food traveling in our digestive tract in just one year!
With clear, simple text and stunning full-color photographs, award-winning science writer Seymour Simon takes us step-by-step through the digestive system, from the moment you chew your food to when it goes into your major organs, such as the stomach and intestines, and how waste is eventually eliminated. Most importantly, he explains how something that happens inside everyone, every day, is such an essential part of our human body.
