What Is Your Body Doing With The Food You Eat?

     Say you’re at a party.  There is chicken, potato-mac salad, tossed greens, spam musubi, raw veggies and dip, red velvet cake, apple pie, and so on.  You help yourself to an assortment of items.  What happens after you’re finished eating?  While most of us have a basic idea of what our digestive system does, this article explains the science of it in easily understood terms. 

     I liked this article because the writer helps make sense of the sort of dietary recommendations I typically give my patients.  It’s an enjoyable read, too (though on the long side, perhaps best read in segments).  I think you will find it to be a valuable resource as well, something worth bookmarking and coming back to for reference.
