How digestion affects everything else

Digestion means a process of turning the foods we eat into the energy, necessary to live. This process of turning food into energy also creates some waste that needs to be eliminated.

Why is digestion important?

When you eat foods—such as bread, meat, and vegetables—they are not in a form that the body can use as nourishment. Food and drink must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before they can be absorbed into the blood and carried to cells throughout the body. Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide energy.
