Why do you have 20 feet of small intestine?

The small intestine is the main digestive organ of the human body. It is where digestion is completed and nearly all absorption of nutrients into the blood stream occurs. Because it has such a big job to do, it needs a large surface area so that more nutrients can be absorbed at any one time. This surface area is provided mainly by its length. The walls of the small intestine are also covered in 'fingerlike' projections called villi, on which are more tiny projections called microvilli. These projections also significantly increase the surface area of the small intestine, to allow a faster rate of absorption.
