Intestine | Human Body Parts | Pre School |Animated Videos For Kids


INTESTINE The small intestine is a long tube that’s
about 1½ inches to 2 inches (about 3.5 to 5 centimeters) around, and it’s packed inside
you beneath your stomach. If you stretched out an adult’s small intestine, it would be
about 22 feet long (6.7 meters) — that’s like 22 notebooks lined up end to end, all
in a row! The small intestine breaks down the food mixture
even more so your body can absorb all the vitamins, minerals, proteins,carbohydrates,
and fats. The grilled chicken on your pizza is full of proteins — and a little fat — and
the small intestine can help extract them with a little help from three friends: the
pancreas, liver, and gallbladder. At 3 or 4 inches around (about 7 to 10 centimeters),
the large intestine is fatter than the small intestine and it’s almost the last stop on
the digestive tract. Like the small intestine, it is packed into the body, and would measure
5 feet (about 1.5 meters) long if you spread it out. The large intestine has a tiny tube with a
closed end coming off it called the appendix. It’s part of the digestive tract, but it doesn’t
seem to do anything, though it can cause big problems because it sometimes gets infected
and needs to be removed.
