  • Human Biology Digestive and Urinary System Essay

    Abstract The human body needs to maintain proper homeostasis to survive. There are several different organ systems in the human body. Two of those systems are the digestive system and the urinary system. Both systems remove waste from the body but in an entirely different way. They also maintain homeostasis within our blood stream. Both systems are critical for survival. This paper will describe how each of those systems works on its own and also how they work together to maintain homeostasis...

    derived from Latin bucca (lit.

Which end forms first in ontogeny is a criterion used to classify animals into protostome and deuterostome. In humans, the first space of the mouth is the mouth cavity, bounded laterally and anteriorly by the alveolar arches (containing the teeth), and posteriorly by the isthmus...

  • The Digestive System

     The primary function of the digestive system is to break down food and help your body absorb the nutrients from this food. The digestive system is made up of the digestive tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach and intestines and other organs that aid in digestion such as the liver, pancreas and gall bladder. The breaking down of food for digestion begins in your mouth. As you eat something, your teeth break down the food, and your saliva helps to breakdown and it moistens the food...

    Purpose The digestive system prepares food for use by hundreds of millions of body cells. Food when eaten cannot reach cells (because it cannot pass through the intestinal walls to the bloodstream and, if it could would not be in a useful chemical state.
