Digestive System

The human body produces about 1.7 liters of saliva a day to aid in digestion. Here is a video that explores the digestive system, highlighting the difference between mechanical and chemical digestion. Scholars then see each organ of the system, learn their jobs, and their location in digestion. The instructor also includes the four major macromolecules and where their digestion occurs. Video two in a series of 21.
