Summary

Giulia Enders provides a complete guide to the latest advances science has made in terms of our digestive system. The whole digestive process, from the time the food enters your mouth to when it is finally digested, is covered. Enders begins with an introduction to the system's overall structure and goes on to explain what role each part of the system plays and how each part interacts with the others in order to promote effective digestion. She starts with the lingual tonsil and moves all the way down to the glycocalyx, explaining what can go wrong, how to identify when something is wrong and what treatments might potentially be explored. This runs the gamut of disorders from the very simple, such as motion sickness, to the more complex, such as an imbalance in the intestinal bacteria. Ant Hive Media studies every chapter, extracts the understanding and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours.

too vague notwithstanding that this is a summary.

I found it too vague notwithstanding that this is a summary. I'll try the original, full book.
