Now onto the large intestine. The organ that completes the job. Water, nutrients, and minerals are absorbed in this organ.
Any remaining food is turned into feces or poop and is gathered in the waiting area known as the rectum.
On to the next system- The excretory system. The system has to do with getting rid of waste from the body. This systems uses the help of other organ from other systems.
The organs that are used in this system includes: the liver, the lungs, the kidneys, and the colon. These organs are the major organs for detoxication.
When we breathe, we breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. When we breathe in the oxygen is converted to carbon dioxide. During that gas exchange carbon dioxide is considered as waste product which is removed from the blood by our lungs.
Proteins are then broken down into an extremely toxic chemical called ammonia. The liver is an organ from the digestive system but it also stops substances, that may be toxic, from passing through your blood stream.
The liver collects ammonia from your blood and converts it into urea.
Then the kidney comes in to play its part. Blood comes into the kidneys through arteries. Which turn into smaller vessels called nephrons.
These nephrons remove any unwelcome urea, salt and, water from the blood. It then takes these items and transforms them to urine or pee. Then the filtered blood goes back to the body and the urine goes to the bladder.
Uteres are long tubes that connect the bladder to the kidneys.
Once the bladder is full, muscles contract and pushes the urine through the urethra.
We now move on to the next system. The nervous system, which is about the brain.
