        Guts: The Small Intestines and Digestion

        After Michael Mosley eats a hearty meal, a camera is then inserted into his body to follow his ingestion.  Students will see the camera’s journey as it makes its way into the small intestines, where students learn about the role that the small intestines play in digestion and the transferring of food into energy.  Mosley works with a colorectal surgeon, Dr. James Kinross, who shows him how the small intestines work by examining pig intestines, which work and look almost identical to that of a human.
