What is the Process of Digestion?

Digestion in the human body starts in the mouth. Teeth grind the food while saliva softens it. It then travels down the esophagus to the stomach. There stomach acid breaks it down even more until it is pushed through to the duodenum. From there, it goes to the ileum, or small intestines. Then to the large intestine. Finally to the rectum where it is excreted from your body.
