Vomiting is a complex reflex act common not only to people but

also to lower animals possessing an alimentary tract and is

basically a protective mechanism to eliminate toxic or irritating

substances from the body. In humans it can be initiated by

emotional, chemical(certain drugs), or physical stimulation
