Guts: Our Digestive System by Seymour SimonWhy is it important tochew your food?
Can you guess how long it takes for food to travel through your body?
Could you possibly have twenty feet of small intestines?
Where does that bad-smelling gas come from?
Your digestive system is out of sight and out of mind -- until things dont go right. Then you may wonder how these important organs work!
Youll find the answers in Seymour Simons smooth, well-organized, and fascinating introduction to the digestive system. He explains how it works twenty-four hours a day, turning pizza, sandwiches, milk, and other food into energy and nutrients and waste. Striking photographs on every spread show how major organs including the stomach and intestines move food through your body, and how, eventually, waste is eliminated.
Guts takes the mystery out of something that happens to everyone, every day, while at the same time sharing a sense of wonder about the human body.

I don't own the Mars company, nor do I own anyone's digestive system but my own. I hope this puts a smile on your face! I saw bright, blinding light and before I knew it I was being picked up by some oddly shaped thing. I'd heard stories about this thing, they call it a hand. They say that once one picks you up, you never come back. Everything felt very slow, and all I could think was 'Noooooo' as I a round hole came into view.
