How do nutrition and exercise contribute to the prevention of many common digestive system disorders?
The digestive system enable people to absorb nutrients from the food that they eat. The digestive system starts at the mouth with teeth breaking down food into basically bite sized chunks, enzymes in saliva assist int he process; other teeth assist to make break the food particles into smaller pieces which are then swallowed. Food then passes through the stomach, small and large intestine on the way out. Different portions of food and liquid are…
The digestive system could not function without the circulatory system. First, the circulatory system is required to distribute nutrients provided by the digestive system to the rest of the body. In addition, without the circulatory system, the tissues of the digestive system could not get oxygen and could not get rid of wastes.
The respiratory system is dependant on the digestive system due to the fact that in order to produce energy the respiratory system needs glucose (C6H12O6) and the digestive system breaks down that glucose. Without the digestive system digesting glucose, the respiratory system would not be able to turn glucose to energy.
All systems in the human body directly or indirectly depend on each other. However, the digestive system mainly relies on the circulatory system and the musculatory system. The circulatory system brings enzymes and oxygen to the digestive system. The musculatory system performs peristalsis, to move the food through the digestive system.
