From burping to the tiny villi in the small intestine, this volume includes everything readers could want to know about the digestive system. Full-color diagrams aid reader understanding as examples from everyday life and a frequently asked questions section engages readers with fascinating facts such as why the stomach rumbles. Additionally, information about eating a balanced diet can help readers make health-promoting choices
